Arsenal's scout, Dimitrov’s agent and Levski’s owners converge on Israel training camp
The story so far: Bulgarian Nicolay Dimitrov travels to London Colney for a week’s trial late last month. According to his club Levski he leaves a good impression.
This is verified by Arsene Wenger himself in a fax sent to the player’s club. Arsenal also ask for permission to send a scout to Levski’s training camp in Israel.
Levski arrange friendly games against Dynamo Kiev in Israel so that Arsenal’s scout can watch Dimitrov in action.
Enter the Scout
Levski’s official site has issued a statement on 16th January verifying the scout’s arrival:
“Arsenal FC has sent today a scouting coach to Eilat, Israel, to watch PFC Levski forward Nikolay Dimitrov in the training sessions and match vs. Dynamo Kyiv on Sunday 20 January 2008”.
Bobby Bennet is the Arsenal scout that has already traveled to Eilat in Israel and has even been staying at the same hotel as the Levski players.
In fact according to Bulgarian sports paper “Gong” he has even been at each training session watching Dimitrov very closely.
This is Bobby Bennet enjoying the sun at Levski's training ground.
He is expected to make a general evaluation of Dimitrov's performance by this Sunday where he will be watching Levski play against Dynamo.
He has refused to make any comments to Bulgarian journalists.
Enter the agent
Dimitrov’s agent, Traiko Sokolov, had accompanied Dimitrov to London for his trial.
He has now traveled to Israel so that he could be there if Arsenal's scout wants to discuss the possibility of Dimitrov signing for Arsenal.
“I have traveled to Israel for Dimitrov but I cannot comment for now. Probably after Saturday” he said to sports paper “Gong”.
Enter the Levski hierarchy
Todor Batkov is the owner of Levski and also of the newspaper "Standard".
According to "Standard" Batkov and the honorary president of the club Michael Chernoy will visit Israel during the weekend to watch Levski's friendly against Dynamo.
Are the scout, the agent and the Levski owner converging together for a reason?

it looks like something is going to happen. Another gem unearthed by wenger?
Well, first of all, why not?! Secondly, I believe Dimitrov might come in the summer. Though, it still could be a coincidence.
If it happens, Wenger goes EastEuropean again. Fabianski, Hleb, Rosicky.
we need a proper winger who can get round the defender and not come inside creating congestion in the midfield central areas
definalty on his way to arsenal! WOOHOO
you get some really good stories. sounds like a decent player but I never get my hopes up these days. too many rumours around for that.
First of all, you are wrong, Cherney owns Levski, not Batkov. Batkov is only the president of the club. And why is he the president? Well because he was Cherney's lawyer in Bulgaria when he was kicked out of the country. So now it seems obvious that he is handling Cherney's business interests there. And where is Cherney now? Cherney is now an Israeli citizen that lives in Israel. That's right. So do you imagine that (a) Levski train in Israel for a reason? (b) Batkov follows the team there to have meetings with Cherney to discuss his business in Bulgaria? Do you seriously think that a prospective couple million pound transfer of a teenager to a club in London is what is bringing these two together?
What does Cherney and Batkov meeting in Israel (where Cherney lives by the way) have to do with anything regarding this transfer? Fax machines do exist you know. You are just throwing in useless speculation to hype a situation that seems to have cold water thrown all over it.
A lot of players come to Arsenal for a trial. Remember Wilson Palacios? That's right, the Honduran that came here for a trial and impressed so much that he is now over at Wigan via Birmingham? Or should I mention Tresor Mputu? And how did that trial go? Should be signed any day now right?
I don't think you can doubt this signing, he's so talented and plays wide, if we don't get him it will be down to Chelski coming in at the last min as they do offer stupid money, like most of there current players.
