According to a report by Sky Sports, Lille’s sporting director Luis Campos is considering taking over at Tottenham Hotspur in a similar role following the appointment of Jose Mourinho as manager.
It is claimed that Mourinho, who is quite close to Campos, has spoken with him about the possibility of joining him at Spurs.
As the man who spotted the likes of Fabinho, Bernardo Silva, Thomas Lemar, Anthony Martial and Nicolas Pepe and has sold on talent worth more £500m, Campos has been dubbed as one of the most sought after men in football for his ability to spot potential in players (Sky Sports).
While the report claims that Lille are still confident that Campos will stay and honour his contract at the club, the 56-year-old is considering coming over to North London to work with his compatriot.
Spurs currently have Rebecca Caplehorn working as director of football operations and Steve Hitchen working as the chief scout, whilst Daniel Levy oversees transfer activity.

Mourinho has only been here for a couple of days but we are already seeing his pulling power. As a pundit, the Portuguese manager has talked repeatedly about the importance of having a good structure in place at clubs for the first-team squad to succeed and it looks like he is attempting to do just that by trying to lure Campos to the club.
