Former Nigeria international defender Michael Emenalo is said to be under consideration for Technical Director at AS Monaco after leaving the same role at Chelsea, where he has been in the job for ten years.

Reports in France indicate that the 52-year-old is a target for Monaco who are looking to bring in an experienced technical staff following the departure of key players this summer.

Emenalo has been a key cog in the Chelsea machine under Roman Abramovich but has seen his role increasingly under pressure in an internal power struggle between Marina Granovskaia, a key Abramovich confidante, and manager Antonio Conte, the UK’s Independent daily reports.

Emenalo is widely regarded as the brain behind Chelsea signing the likes of Eden Hazard, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Thibaut Courtois, among others.

Although the move to Monaco is not set to be imminent, there have been reports that their interest in his services made him quit his role at Chelsea earlier than when he would have preferred.
