Widescale changes at Arsenal
Nuno Espírito Santo’s Wolves have picked up a former Arsenal scout after he exited the Emirates club following the appointment of Unai Emery.
There were many changes at Arsenal over the summer.
As Arsene Wenger left the club after many years in charge, it was inevitable that there would be a complete reshuffle at every level of the club.
Emery brought with him several staff members and one of them was Victor Manas who came in as a video scout when the Spaniard took over.
Though, that role was formerly held by Ben Wrigglesworth.
He has now confirmed through his LinkedIn this week that he has left the club.
He had joined Arsenal from Leicester in 2016.
Onto a new chapter with Wolves
His LinkedIn profile has also revealed where he left for.
That club comes in the form of Wolves who have made a good start to life in the Premier League.
They currently sit in 7th in the table and have had some brilliant results, one against Manchester City in a game which they could easily have won.

While their main goal will be to stay up in their first year back in the top flight, they will be aiming higher when they reach 40 points.
They will certainly be looking for a European spot next year and Ben Wrigglesworth could prove to be the difference when Wolves make their move for both January and summer signings.
Time will only tell if he’s a big miss for Arsenal or not.

Another person who could be leaving Arsenal is Aaron Ramsey.
He has been linked with a move away this week and both Manchester United and Arsenal have been cited as potential destinations.
