The Gunners have confirmed the appointment of former player, John Jensen as chief scout for Scandinavia.
The Dane played Arsenal from 1992 to 1996 where he scored a sensational goal against Queens Park Rangers.
The goal happened to be his only goal for the North London based club as they lost by three goals to one.
After retiring as a footballer, he moved to coaching and managerial positions with his last stint as caretaker coach of Denmark in 2018.
He has also had management and coaching experiences with Getafe, Blackburn, Bronby and some others.
Speaking toEkstra Bladet, the 54 year old said
“Initially, I need to find talents for the club’s academy, but in the long term I hope to contribute with scouting players to the Premier League team.”
“After more than 20 years as a coach, I feel that I have my finger on the pulse of the football industry.
“The competition is therefore great, and that means that we must have followed the talents from maybe 12-13 years to assess whether they are ready for such a big leap that Arsenal will be when they can change clubs.”
The club will be relying on his expertise as Unai Emery is expected to strengthen his team for the upcoming season.
