Chelsea, Arsenal and Roma Linked With Moves for Lille Sporting Director Luis Campos

​Chelsea, Arsenal and Roma are all reportedly hopeful of hiring Lille sporting director Luis Campos during the summer. 

The Premier League sides will face stiff competition from Serie A team Roma for Campos' services, following his role in Lille's impressive domestic campaign this season with the club currently sitting in second in Ligue 1 and looking likely to qualify for the Champions League. 

Lille's performances have been seen as mightily impressive considering the French side only avoided the relegation play-off last season by a single point.

Campos was also the sporting director at AS Monaco during the 2016/17 season, in which Leonardo Jardim's pipped Paris Saint Germain to the Ligue 1 title and also progressed to the Champions League semi finals before losing 4-1 on aggregate to ​Juventus.

According to ​TuttoMercatoWeb, the European trio will look to appoint Campos at the end of the season, with ​Arsenal and Roma in particular looking towards the Portuguese after Roma's former sporting director Monchi left the Italian capital to join Sevilla, favouring the Spanish side over a move to Arsenal.

Campos can also boast a spell as a scout at Spanish giants ​Real Madrid during his career, as well as a stint as a manager at several Portuguese clubs such as Beira-Mar and Gil Vicente.

The 54-year-old is also accredited with the discovery of several well known European talents such as PSG's ​Kylian Mbappe, ​Manchester United's ​Anthony Martial and ​Manchester City's ​Bernardo Silva.
