Arsenal has been linked with Luis Campos, the man who discovered Kylian Mbappe.
Campos has become one of the world’s best talent spotters because of his work at teams like AS Monaco and Lille.
He has an eye for a top future player and he will help Arsenal maintain their reputation for spotting and developing top youngsters.
He has been unattached since he left Lille in 2018 and it seems that he might return to a club soon.
Some reports speculated that he was in talks with Nice to become their latest sporting director.
However, journalist Loic Tanzi, has now revealed that it isn’t true and instead he is talking to Arsenal and Real Madrid, among other European teams.
He tweeted: “Luis Campos will not join Nice. No contact with the Gym. However, Luis Campos is still in discussions with several clubs including Real Madrid and Arsenal. The Portuguese is attentive to the development of other European clubs as well.”
Arsenal has done well from scouting recently, having discovered the likes of Gabriel Martinelli from almost nowhere.
They have also restructured their scouting department recently and he might help them to become even better at identifying upcoming talents.
