Lille sporting director Luis Campos has asked to be released from his job at the French club with two years remaining on his current deal, according to the Daily Record.
The report claims that the Portuguese transfer supremo has fallen out with the hierarchy at Lille over the club’s summer transfer business and he is now wanted by a host of clubs across Europe.
One of those, it appears, is Tottenham. The report claims that Jose Mourinho has been keen to bring Campos in ever since he took the job in North London last November. The pair worked together at Real Madrid.
Of course, this interest is nothing new. Canal + reported that the Portuguese compatriot of Mourinho was set to leave Lille and join up with his countryman in North London back in May.
The Lille man had reportedly been on Tottenham’s radar since December, as reported by The Guardian.
But no move ever came about. If he was to depart Lille, then surely Tottenham would be back in the running for a man who once told Sky Sports that Mourinho was ‘like a brother’ to him.
If so, Tottenham would have one of the sharpest transfer players in the game, responsible for the likes of Nicolas Pepe, Victor Osimhen, and Gabriel Magalhaes’s excellent financial returns.
It will be interesting to see if Campos does get his release from Lille and, if he does, whether that leads to a Tottenham reunion with Mourinho.
