Arsenal aiming to weaken Man Utd in backroom raid for influential duo



Arsenal are reportedly interested in trying to poach scouts Dave Harrison and Lyndon Tomlinson from Manchester United.
Harrison and Tomlinson joined United from Manchester City in 2017 and were given the task of overhauling their scouting system.
The duo are widely regarded as two of the best in their fields and the Daily Mail claims that the Gunners are poised to move for the pair.
The Emirates outfit want to poach Tomlinson and Harrison after kick-starting a restructuring of their youth system.
Head of youth recruitment and former player, Steve Morrow, has been axed as part of the club’s overhaul and there could be some high profile arrivals.
As well as being big fans of Harrison and Tomlinson, the report adds that Arsenal are also keen on hiring Manchester City?s head of youth recruitment Joe Shields.
United?s youth development has gone into a new gear since the arrival Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager, with the Red Devils boss keen to include as many youngsters as possible in his squad.
Mason Greenwood, James Garner, Brandon Williams and Angel Gomes have all stepped up and played a part for the first team this season.
Arsenal also have a wealth of young talent in their academy, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Gabriel Martinelli impressing this season when called upon.
However, it would appear that they are not completely happy with how the current system works, hence the need for major change.
