Always bugs me when supporters question our scouting department ability. Wenger, as the manger has the final say regarding who comes in and composition of the 1st team.
I guess this is where one of the pros of having a DoF or Sporting Director in place can be beneficial. They can liaise with scouting to buy talents independently from the manager at a relatively low financial cost.
Most up and coming young talents are ‘known’ to most top clubs
