The Gunners are believed to have poached QPR scout Ian Broomfield, who was part of Harry Redknapp’s squad at Tottenham.

Not a lot of figures in the footballing community go between fierce North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham, but today’s media indicate that a leading scout may well be set to do just that.

The Daily Express have stated that the Gunners have agreed a deal to bring Ian Broomfield to the Emirates Stadium from QPR.

The talent spotter was part of Harry Redknapp’s staff at both Portsmouth and Tottenham, and is adjudged as having a great eye for potential in young players.

Broomfield is charged with facilitating a number of Tottenham’s recent transfer dealings through his scouting recommendations.

The scout played a role in both Jan Vertonghen and Hugo Lloris ending up at White Hart Lane.

However, there is yet to be a confirmation from either Arsenal or QPR in regards to Broomfield’s future.
