Official: Arsenal complete Second January Transfer, Bigger than Elneny


Arsenal have appointed Leicester City’s head of scouts Ben Wrigglesworth according to reports.

The Telegraph have reported the story where Gunners have tapped Wrigglesworth, who has made a real name for himself by spotting talents like Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante.

Those two players have been massive in Leicester’s bid to win this season’s Premier League. While Mahrez has been chipping in with goals and assists, Kante has been a wall in front of the Leicester’s defense.

Seeing how Wrigglesworth has been effective for the Foxes, Arsene Wenger has personally lauded the work done by Leicester’s head of technical scouting.

According to Telegraph, Arsenal convinced Wrigglesworth to join the Emirates scouting team and bring in talents like Mahrez and Kante in coming seasons.

According to Telegraph, Wrigglesworth will join Arsenal in coming weeks and will have a huge say in next summer’s transfer window by bringing hidden gems from all over the world of football.

This move will deliver a body blow to Leicester’s title aspirations, who were hoping to add new players in January, however, with Wrigglesworth moving to Arsenal, the advantage may lie with the Gunners in this season’s title race.

Arsenal played a 0-0 draw last time around against Stoke, while Leicester played a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa last weekend.
