The former Arsenal star intends to return to the Premier League.

Ajax

director of football Marc Overmars is seeking a similar job at

Newcastle

.

The club is now the richest club in the world after the Saudi Investment Fund acquired ownership of Newcastle. Newcastle are expected to start attracting big football stars with their new management in the near future, but their current goal is to reach the Champions League and participate in this competition.

In their first step, the club's new owner fired Steve Bruce, the club's manager, and now they plan to sack club's managing director Lee Charnelly. The new owners are considering several options to replace Charnelly, and Marc Overmars is said to be one of them, although no direct negotiations have taken place between the two sides.

On the other hand, Overmars, who has achieved significant success at Ajax, is interested in participating in the ambitious Newcastle project and will accept it if offered. He has a good knowledge of the Premier League and played for Arsenal as a player, playing a key role in Wenger's success in the late 1990s.

He left Arsenal for Barcelona in 2000 for € 30 million, becoming the most expensive Dutch player in history at the time, but a number of injuries prevented him from continuing to shine.
