Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly is keen to recruit Paris Saint-Germain’s Luis Campos as the Blues’ next sporting director.
According to The Times, Boehly, who spent over £250million on players during the summer transfer window, has already held talks with Campos over the vacant job.
Boehly is looking for a sporting director to work alongside Chelsea’s new head coach Graham Potter, who replaced Thomas Tuchel last Thursday.
Chelsea are currently working without a sporting director, but now want to bring one in after Potter underlined the importance of the role, having worked closely with Dan Ashworth during his time at Brighton.
Meanwhile, Campos is perhaps best known for his time at Monaco and Lille, twice helping build clubs on small budgets which denied big spenders PSG the Ligue 1 title, in 2016-2017 and 2020-2021, respectively.
The 58-year-old has a reputation for signing players with huge potential, who have then gone on to sell for massive profits, such as Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe.
Other players Campos has signed and then sold for big money are Bernardo Silva, Nicolas Pepe, Fabinho, Thomas Lemar and Sven Botman.
