He is keen to recruit top players for them.

McLachlan is the man he fancies for the role after he left his position at Stamford Bridge.

The Scot was at Chelsea for 11 years and has a big knowledge of foreign players and emerging talent.

Meanwhile, the Blues are still on the hunt for a sporting director, after RB Salzburg’s Christoph Freund ruled himself out.

So they have reportedly made contact with Luis Campos with owner Todd Boehly keen to hire him.

Campos is currently employed by Paris Saint-Germain having made the move to Parc des Princes in June to become their football advisor.

Arsenal were linked with hiring the ex-Lille talent spotter in June 2021 following his huge success in Ligue 1.

Meanwhile the ex-Portuguese gaffer held talks with Newcastle last year following their Saudi-backed £300million takeover.
