Frank Arnesen remains under pressure to keep his job at Chelsea.

The Observer says Arnesen believes Guus Hiddink's arrival could restore his power at Chelsea and dined with him last week.

But club insiders say a new chief scout could be sought. Hans van der Zee, at Ajax, is a prime candidate.

Chelsea target Ajax chief scout Hans van der Zee

If reports in the English press are to be believed today, there will be an even greater Dutch feel to Chelsea next season.

The News of the World claims today that "Roman Abramovich hopes to complete his new backroom staff by recruiting Ajax chief scout Hans van der Zee. The Dutchman will work under new Chelsea manager Frank Rijkaard next season."

A fellow report in the Daily Express says that Hans van der Zee will "join Frank Arnesen in bringing in and developing new talent."

Hans van der Zee has been chief international scout at Ajax since July 1, 2007, he has had a specific remit to find players outside Holland. Prior to moving to the Amsterdam giants, he performed the same role for PSV from 2001, during his time in Eindhoven he brought Jefferson Farfan to the club.

The 53-year-old has also had spells as the technical director at AZ Alkmaar and coach of Sparta Rotterdam. During Guus Hiddink's time as Australia manager, van der Zee worked as an analyst for the Socceroos.

ROMAN ABRAMOVICH hopes to complete his new backroom staff by recruiting Ajax chief scout Hans van der Zee.

The Dutchman will work under new Chelsea manager Frank Rijkaard next season.

We exclusively revealed last month that Rijkaard is in line to succeed caretaker manager Guus Hiddink, who will resume his job with Russia in the summer.

Frank Arnesen becomes owner Red Rom's director of football with Van Der Zee the Dane's nominated appointment as chief scout.

Rijkaard, who has taken a year out after leaving Barcelona last summer, is on holiday in America but will return to Europe at Easter.

And the Holland legend has told close friends he will be ready to resume work on July 1.

But there will still be a role at Chelsea for Hiddink as he is going to be handed a senior consultancy position.

We need really could do with looking at re-structuring our set up. We need a set-up that is going to last us and we need to build something lasting. We could also do with looking at our youth coaching set up, i am not convinced we have the best possible coaches for our youngsters since the all the changes this season.
