And the Brazilian’s rise will see him take a more active role at the club, including at academy level.

He said of his new role: “I am excited about this new role which I see as an evolution and consolidation of the way we have worked so far.

“We are making good progress in all areas of our men’s, women’s and academy and are all excited to see what can be achieved.

“I look forward to building on the hard work of so many people and helping us all grow and achieve greater success together and am grateful for the trust the club has placed in me.

“We’re moving forward together.”

Arsenal boss Vinai Venkatesham had no problem giving Edu more power at the club following recent first-team success.

He said: “We are delighted that Edu is once again devoting his future to the club he so clearly loves, having been such a positive and critical contributor to our progress during his time with us.

“Edu’s promotion formalizes his already growing influence over our Academy operations.

“And we look forward to Per and Edu working together to further strengthen the integration between our first men’s team and the academy.”

Arsenal have taken an incredible turnaround in the last 18 months.

A string of solid signings – notably Martin Odegaard – have propelled the north Londoners into the Premier League title fight.

The Gunners are currently having one of their best starts to the season ever – winning 12, drawing and losing one of their first 14 league games.

That form has propelled them to the top of the Premier League tree – which they lead by five points.
