Chelsea maintain pursuit of Arsenal chief scout Rowley

Chelsea are actively rebuilding their scouting team.

The talent spotting department at Chelsea has been dismantled following the departure of football chief Frank Arnesen for Hamburg.

The Independent says Chelsea are keen to attract the Arsenal chief scout, Steve Rowley, and are prepared to offer him a substantial financial package to move across London and head the club's scouting network.

Chelsea are also looking at Roger Smith, the former Arsenal scout who is currently chief scout at Cardiff.

Another target is Ewen Chester, who recently announced he will leave his job with Norwich City in August and said he is "looking to pursue another scouting position involving international recruitment".
