Chelsea approach super scout Luis Campos to replace Michael Emenalo

Chelsea have identified Monaco super scout Luis Campos as the man they want to replace Michael Emenalo as the club’s new technical director, according to reports.

The 52-year-old announced his decision to step down from his role following Chelsea’s win over Manchester United in their final match before the international break.

Emenalo headed up Chelsea’s recruitment and their youth system, while he was also credited with being the main buffer between Antonio Conte and the rest of the club’s hierarchy.

His departure has left a massive hole at Chelsea, but Duncan Castles, writing for Arab News, claims they have moved swiftly to try and find a replacement and have already approached Campos.

The Portuguese scout is widely regarded as European football’s most accomplished talent spotter largely thanks to his work at Monaco.

Although now at Lille, during his time with Monaco Camos recruited the likes of Anthony Martial, Thomas Lemar, Kylian Mbappe, Benjamin Mendy, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Bernardo Silva.

Campos is thought to be interested in moving to Stamford Bridge, while his ability to find teenage talent and sell it at a massive profit is in line with Chelsea’s own approach in the market.

Interestingly, Campos was previously Jose Mourinho’s senior scout at Real Madrid.

Emenalo, meanwhile, could be back in work rather quicker than expected – despite saying he wanted time out from football.

He is, rather ironically, being lined up to take on Campos’ old role as Monaco’s sporting director, where he could expect to receive an even bigger salary than at Chelsea.
