And according to Sky Sports in Germany, Vivell has signed with Chelsea and already received his working visa.

The scouting expert is expected to be announced soon following his departure from RB Leipzig two months ago.

Vivell was sacked by Leipzig in October, which came after holding a meeting with Chelsea bosses the same week.

The 36-year-old was technical director at the Bundesliga side from 2020 and was responsible for transfers and scouting.

But he left after announcing a “contrast in views” was the reason behind his departure.

He was previously at RB Salzburg where, along with Christoph Freund, he helped unearth Erling Haaland.

Chelsea also showed interest in Freund but he was happy at Salzburg and decided to stay put.

Vivell will be the latest addition to Boehly’s staff following the arrival of new head of recruitment Joe Shields.

The billionaire businessman sacked Thomas Tuchel in September and replaced him with Graham Potter.

Potter brought his backroom staff from Brighton and also welcomed the arrival of Paul Winstanley.

Winstanley was been appointed as the club’s director of global talent and transfers.
