Lille sporting director Luis Campos is reported to have told parties who are interested in his services that he is focused on his position at the French club.
Campos has previously been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, which would have seen him reunited with Jose Mourinho.
The pair worked together whilst Mourinho was in charge of Real Madrid and reports shortly after the Portuguese took over in North London suggested that he was optimistic of bringing his compatriot to the club (Guardian).
The 55-year-old has insisted that he enjoys the challenge of unearthing players for a relatively low amount of money and turning them into highly profitable assets for the Ligue 1 outfit.
Campos’ track record speaks for itself having been credited for the emergence of Kylian Mbappe, Nicolas Pepe, James Rodriguez and Bernardo Silva (talkSPORT).
Such is his reputation in the game he has also said to have been on the radar of Chelsea and Manchester United (Guardian).
He told Jornal Record: “I feel very good about the Lille project, it’s good for me and the supporters.
“There has been contact and information gathering, but I answer every time that I am focused on the progression of Lille.
“I am absolutely seduced by the recruitment of players from €0-3 million or from €3-6 million. Players who, with the work team I have, will be worth much more in the future.”
