There is some good news for Arsenal supporters. They have already moved to the third spot in the league standings after their win in Bournemouth and now roped in Ben Wrigglesworth. The Leicester City professional took on the social media network to confirm his move from the Leicester City to Arsenal.
The Foxes are in exquisite form this season. Their dominance in the league standings was apparent in their recent form against Manchester City when they thrashed the citizens 3-1, thanks to some exceptional goal scoring from Riyad Mehrez and also N’Golo.
They now stand on top of the table with 52-points opening a five point gap between them and the second seeded Tottenham Hotspur. They are now hot favorites to win the title as their dream run continues.
Well, much credit must be given to Wrigglesworth for his contribution in the side. As the Metro UK quotes it, “Wrigglesworth is a highly-rated scout and the Gunners have moved to bring him to bolster their collection of talent hunters.”
“He is widely credited with signing N’Golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez for Leicester, along with several youth products.”
“And now Arsenal are set to reap the benefits of his expertise after Wrigglesworth confirmed he’d joined the club on his LinkedIn page.”

“It was a very difficult decision, leaving Leicester, but I had to take an opportunity that doesn’t come round often.
“I only wish the best for Leicester in the future and will always be eternally grateful to them for getting me to where I am.”
EPL teams are going through a series of reforms with Man City appointing Pep Guardiola to replace their current manager Manuel Pellegrini. Former Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, has been linked with Manchester United. It will be interesting to see how other teams keep up with the changes.
