Tony Adams reportedly contacted Ivan Gazidis over the summer only to be told there was no role for him at the club under Unai Emery.
Adams has not enjoyed the best relationship with Arsenal and the fans over the last few years and there seemed to be a genuine issue between him and Arsene Wenger.

It’s no surprise, then, that the man known as Mr. Arsenal would get in touch as soon as the Frenchman left to see if there was an opening that would allow him to return to the club he loves so much.
It’s also no surprise that the club would decline his offer, connected as Adams is to Arsenal. His track record in coaching since he hung up his boots reads like one failure after another which is a real shame because he seemed the perfect fit for a managerial position one day.
Adams has coached or managed at Wycombe Wanderers Feyenoord, Portsmouth, Gabala, and Granada. Of the 82 games he’s been in charge of, he’s tasted victory just 16 times, drawing 28 and losing 38. His win percentage is 19.2.
