There are "USB Host Shields" for Arduino, usually based on the MAX3421.  But they tend to be more expensive that boards that have native support for USB host (like the Teensies and SAMD51 boards.))

Or you could look around to see if anyone is still selling the "Arduino Mega ADK" (Android Development Kit) - this is essentially a mega2560 with the MAX USB host chip already on the board.

That’s a very interesting idea, thanks! I didn’t know about this board, even though it is right there in the boards manager.  |O
Do you know a good usb hid host library for that board?

I've found some videos I hope they might help:


Miti:
Right, it is right there on arduino.cc, USB Host Shield Library 2.0. I’ll give it a try.

Cheers,
Miti

I think using an USB host shield will be the best option. Here you can find a detailed tutorial: https://www.theengineeringprojects.com/2020/12/introduction-to-arduino-usb-host-shields.html
