Chelsea are launching a worldwide search for a new left-back.

The Daily Mail says Blues’ technical director Michael Emenalo has made the identification of Ashley Cole’s long-term successor a priority among the club’s global network of scouts.

Among certain members of Chelsea’s recruitment staff there should only be one option: Southampton’s Luke Shaw. But the 18-year-old will be in huge demand when Saints supremo Nicola Cortese finally sells his prized asset, prompting Chelsea to widen their search, with Sevilla left back Alberto Moreno the latest to be mentioned.
