The Spurs target requested to leave the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Monday and is set to reunite with Jose Mourinho at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Although The Telegraph’s chief football correspondent Jason Burt has claimed that the Lilywhites are yet to reach an agreement with the transfer guru, the French media are insisting Spurs are in pole position to bring the scout to north London in a matter of weeks.
Earlier this season, The Guardian revealed the 55-year-old is at the top of Daniel Levy’s list of priorities, as he has a close relationship with Jose Mourinho. Indeed, the Portuguese duo worked together during Mourinho’s famous stint in charge at Real Madrid and Campos has previously called him the “best coach in the world” (Sky Sports).
Football journalist Ricky Sacks tweeted the news on social media, saying: “BREAKING | Lille OSC Director Of Football Luis Campos is expected to join Josè Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur. The Spurs target made a formal request to leave the French club on Monday under his current position as Sporting Director. | [Canal +].”
Unsurprisingly, loads of Spurs fans gushed over this “huge” update, with one supporter dubbing Campos a “game changer” and another adding that the “Prem ain’t ready.”
