Many pairs of eyes are firmly on Newcastle United to see what they do after being taken over last week.

The Magpies are now the richest club in the world, and big things are likely in the offing for them.

A host of players are being linked with a move to St. James’ Park.

But it’s not just players.

There is a lot of talk about possible replacements for Steve Bruce, but also, a new director of football.

There are claims today that Luis Campos could be brought in by the new owners – and that is potentially bad news for Wolves.

Campos is currently unattached, but the last club he work at was Lille.

He was there from 2017 to December 2020. This, after making his name at AS Monaco for discovering the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Fabinho and Bernardo Silva and then turning big profits.

 

His success continued at Lille, and he was responsible for recruiting two players that were heavily linked with Wolves in the summer.

Campos may try to take Botman and Sanches to Newcastle

Sven Botman and Renato Sanches were both linked with Wolves at the end of the summer transfer window.

In the end, neither joined, much to the frustration of many Wolves fans.

If Campos, 57, became Newcastle’s new sporting director/director of football, then there is a chance he may look to raid his old club.

It is not out of the question Lille could sell one or both in the next window given the financial difficulties they’ve had in recent times.

Given Newcastle’s new financial might, they would surely have no issues affording both players.

The duo would make a world of difference to Wolves, so it would be hugely frustrating if Campos did join Newcastle and poach them.
