Arsenal have made the decision to permanently relocate one of their scouts to Serbia because Arsene Wenger believes the country will be “the next hot bed for European talent.”

There are a number of Serbians plying their trade in the Barclays Premier League at the moment, plus more that have been linked with moves to England recently.

And Wenger, who is an expert at spotting potential superstars and bringing them into Arsenal’s first team, feels now is the time to take advantage of the talent line coming out of the country.

Wenger has previously raided the likes of France, Ivory Coast and Scandinavia to supplement Arsenal’s young reserve squad and develop them into stars of the future.

Now, scout Bobby Bennet, who was previously in charge of scouting Northern Europe, has been moved by the Gunners to Serbia, according to a source.

“Arsenal have actually permanently stationed a scout in Serbia because Arsene Wenger believes that in the next few years this will become the hot bed for European talent,” the source told


“The scout was moved from Scandinavia and Northern Europe and asked to concentrate on Serbia, there is a lot of potential in the area according to Arsene.


“Their U-20’s won a big tournament recently sparking interest in the area.”
