According to The Times, Moritz Volz will leave his position as an Arsenal scout in Germany to take up a coaching position at RB Leipzig.
Volz, who was on the books at Highbury from 2000-2004 before establishing himself as a regular at Fulham, has been part of our continental network, overseen until recently by Gilles Grimandi, for a few years.
Readers of a certain age may also remember that full-back Volz was something of a character and had a pretty awesome blog during his playing career. The Guardian wrote about it back in 2015, including this fantastic snippet.
The report claims that Arsenal are planning an overhaul of the scouting department this summer…but presumably that’s all reliant on us finding a technical director.
There hasn’t been much movement on that front since Sven Mislintat left the club and Spaniard Monchi opted to join Sevilla instead of us.
