Chelsea have apparently reached out to Luis Campos, with owner Todd Boehly eager to employ him as their sporting director.

The 58-year-old is presently working as a football advisor for Paris Saint-Germain, having moved to Parc des Princes in June.

Following his remarkable success in Ligue 1, Arsenal were linked with recruiting the ex-Lille talent scout in June 2021.

Meanwhile, the ex-Portuguese manager met with Newcastle last year following their £300 million takeover by Saudi Arabia.

According to The Times, it is now Chelsea’s turn to persuade Campos to switch from France to England.

According to reports, Boehly has already spoken with Campos about moving to Stamford Bridge to work with incoming manager Graham Potter.

Bohely is ready to spend big in January after Chelsea was Europe’s highest spender in the summer, spending £255.3 million.

And the American businessman wants Campos to spearhead their winter transfer window spending spree.

Campos, who served as a scout and tactical analyst for Real Madrid alongside Jose Mourinho in 2012, was Monaco’s sporting director from 2013 until 2016.

During that period, he was in charge of significant transfer arrivals like as Kylian Mbappe, Radamel Falcao, Anthony Martial, Fabinho, Joao Moutinho, James Rodriguez, and Bernardo Silva.

His astute selections propelled Monaco to the French top flight title ahead of PSG in 2017, and he replicated the feat as Lille’s sporting director from 2017 to 2020.

He signed players like Victor Osimhen, Sven Botman, Jonathan David, Rafael Leao, and Nicolas Pepe while at Lille.

His astute financial decisions there enabled Lille to reclaim the Ligue 1 championship from Les Parisiens in 2020.

Campos was not only known for his market knowledge, but he also earned massive profits for Monaco and Lille in player transactions.

He was able to get Mbappe to PSG on a loan deal in 2017 with the obligation to sign him for £166 million the following year.

And he managed to bring in around £305m during his time with Lille where he flogged the likes of Pepe, Gabriel Magalhaes, Leao, Thiago Mendes and Osimhen.
