Arsenal

Rowley set to leave Arsenal

9th November 2017, 13:53 by Chris Rivers

Arsenal chief scout Steve Rowley has reportedly decided to leave the club after 35 years having grown frustrated with his treatment.

Chief executive Ivan Gazdis is trying to overhaul the recruitment system at the Emirates Stadium and has already overseen the departure of chief transfer negotiator Dick Law earlier this year.

Next to go looks likely to be Rowley, despite his close association with manager Arsene Wenger, who appointed him head scout when he took charge in 1996.

Rowley is reportedly fed up with getting the blame for Arsenal's recent poor record in the transfer market and has informed other clubs that he is available.

Gazidis is keen for Arsenal to adopt a 'Moneyball' approach to their transfer policy, focusing more on stats and analytics when it comes to selecting potential new arrivals.

However, Wenger is not thought to be entirely in favour of that strategy, preventing Gazidis bringing in that type of system previously.
