Arsenal set to continue cost-cutting with up to ten scouts facing the sack

Arsenal is set to fire some of their scouts this summer because of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Gunners are one of the teams that have been hit the hardest by the coronavirus pandemic and they have been looking for ways to keep their finances on an even keel.

They asked their players to take a pay cut earlier in the year and have fired some of their top scouts before now.

It seems that their cut-costing drive hasn’t finished yet with the Mail claiming that the Gunners are set to let go of some of their scouts who are soon to be out of contract.

The report claims that the scouts have been informed via emails that their contract which expires at the end of June won’t be renewed for obvious reasons.

These scouts have been an important part of the club’s success because they have helped them unearth players like Reiss Nelson and Bukayo Saka.

Arsenal fans don’t know exactly what to expect from their team when the transfer window reopens as the club continues to find a way to save money.

It is unclear if they are cutting costs so that they can have a good amount of money for new transfers or because they genuinely have a shortage of cash.

This also puts into perspective the consequences of some of the Arsenal players refusing to take a pay cut as well as the clubs self-sufficiency model which means that the owner Stan Kroenke is unlikely to inject any monies.

    We deem it necessary to pay off 10 youth scouts to save 8k per month when some of our players are earning upwards of 500k per month.The inequality of the earnings structure of our Club , and no doubt all EPL Clubs is exemplified by this disgraceful decision which is a short term reaction at a time when we will more than ever , require to recruit talented youngsters.Whoever took this decision needs his head examined.Unload the likes of Elneny or Sokratis rather than getting rid of men who can unearth gems to safeguard the longer term future of our Club..Crazy.

      SPOT ON GRANDAD. ITS A TOTAL DISGRACE AND SHEER INCOMPETENCE TOO. TYPICAL SHORT TERMISM FROM THIS FAST REGRESSING CLUB. Kroenke knows the price of everything but the value of nothing worthwhile. Bungling amateur who neither knows nor cares about even the first thing in football. Creep!
