Chelsea are believed to be stepping up their interest in Luis Campos as they plan to appoint a director of football. The Blues’ transfers are mainly handled by Marina Granovskaia but the board are thought to be keen on bringing in a specialist to allow the Russian-Canadian extra time to tend to other commercial activities.
Campos is thought to have been an option for some time having first been linked in November 2017 and is said to be considering a new challenge after three years as Lille’s sporting director.
Before moving to Hauts-de-France, he had earned plaudits for his scouting work with Monaco and Real Madrid. Both of those clubs are also thought to be monitoring his current situation but sources in France say it is Chelsea who are the leading contenders to appoint him.
The 54-year-old is believed the board’s favourite to take on the role as a director of football and with a bigger budget to work with at Stamford Bridge, the Portuguese could be tempted to step away from Les Dogues for a new challenge in London.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
