Arsenal continue to cut scouting team

Arsenal are continue to cut their scouting team.

The Mirror says Arsenal are culling several senior continental scouts in another round of cuts.

The Gunners have informed a number of their spies who are working abroad that their employment will be terminated.

The move comes just days after it was revealed that the financial pressure at the Emirates had resulted in ten part-time academy scouts losing their roles at the club.

They had been recognised as bringing through the current crop that included Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Reiss Nelson – both of whom would now command significant transfer fees were they put up for sale.

And it now appears the belt-tightening extends as far as those looking to recruit at first-team level in overseas markets.

Those concerned received letters this week confirming that their employment was being terminated.
