Former Olympique Marseille striker, Habib Bamogo, has confirmed he’s now working as a France-based scout for Everton.
Bamogo admits he’s been talent spotting at youth level for the Toffees for the past year.
He told Foot Mercato: “It’s going to be a year in January, so it’s going really fast. Me, I have an acquaintance in football, my cousin, who knew the (Everton) recruiter who takes care of the pros in France.
“He was looking for someone for young players. So, I met everyone and I was told that they were going to give me a six-month contract to see if it suited me too. I liked it, especially since I take care of young players so I see them all a little bit coming through, those who will become pro. It’s something that I really like.
“I’m mainly in France. I’m working my schedule, I’m going to see the matches. Among young players, I think it’s a bit different than when you recruit from the pros.
