Russian football scout Pavel Kucherov has joined Everton from Arsenal.

Kucherov has revealed that he’s signed for Everton and has already attended a couple of European matches including Manchester United’s 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow.

Kucherov was in the press over the summer when he revealed that Arsene Wenger had asked him to keep an eye on CSKA Moscow 21-year-old Aleksandr Golovin. However, the Russian football expert didn’t believe the midfielder was ready for the Premier League.

It’s not been said whether his leaving has anything to do with the interview in question.

After observing mixed success with their new recruits, the Toffees obviously decided to bring in some more experience in order to make informed future signings.

Kucherov previously played as a defender for the likes of Spartak Oryol and Divizion Smolensk in the 1980s.

The 53-year-old was at Dutch side Willem II between 1998 and 2011. While there he served as head of the youth academy, chief scout and assistant manager.

After working as assistant manager of Karpaty Lviv for a year, he became manager in 2012. The following year he took over at Naftan Novopolotsk before taking up another supporting role at Dinamo Minsk.

Kucherov finally joined Arsenal as a scout in 2014 where he remained for three years.

Good luck, Pavel.
