Leicester City Legend Gary Lineker has claimed that the Gunners have signed the wrong scout, according to goal.
The Gunners have completed the signing of Leicester City scout Ben Wrigglesworth after the scout revealed on social media that he is set to move to the Emirates.
Reports have claimed that Wrigglesworth is the man behind Leicester’s performance this season as it was thought that he identified most of the club’s stars with his good scouting ability.
However, Lineker has revealed that Wrigglesworth is not the man behind leicester’s success as the new Arsenal scout did not identify any of the club’s star players. But Lineker believes that Leicester City’s assistant manager Steve Walsh is the brain behind the foxes superb scouting network.
“I love how Arsenal nicked the wrong scout. N’Golo Kante, for sure, Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy. Four at least,” said the former England striker.
“Steve Walsh is the guy who found these players and bought them in.
“I know when he found Riyad Mahrez he was sent to watch someone else and came back with Mahrez.
“He’s done a brilliant job and that’s been the large key to Leicester’s success. As in all clubs, it’s about the people you bring in and they’ve done it on a relatively small budget compared with the giants.”
Leicester currently top the English Premier league with five points ahead of the second place Tottenham Hotspur. The Foxes also boasts of the league’s highest goal scorer in Vardy as well as the second highest assist king in Mahrez, two players reportedly identified by Steve Walsh.
