ARSENAL are poised to pinch ex-Manchester United fitness guru Tony Strudwick.
It is the latest step in Mikel Arteta’s huge backroom overhaul after a dismal campaign for the Gunners.

According to the Mirror, Strudwick is to take a role as academy head of sports science and medicine at Arsenal.
Strudwick will leave his job as head of sports science and medicine at Sheffield Wednesday to work for the Gunners.
He spent seven years at Old Trafford earlier in his career, working as a first-team coach before moving to head of athletic development.
Strudwick’s move to Arsenal continues Arteta’s overhaul of his backroom staff after missing out on qualification for Europe.
Gunners legend Steve Bould was sacked as Under-23s coach earlier this month after more than three decades at the club.
