Chelsea owner ‘Todd Boehly already looking at buying new club.. as he targets Arsenal legend Arsene Wenger’s old team’
CHELSEA owner Todd Boehly is already looking into buying another football club, according to reports.
The American businessman, 49, purchased the Blues from Roman Abramovich last summer in a £4.25billion deal.
And he has made quite the splash in the Premier League, spending more than £600million on players in less than 12 months.
But he is yet to see any form of improvement on the pitch as Chelsea manager Garam Potter struggles down in 10th place.
Now Boehly is reportedly considering the purchase of another football club in the form of Lique 1 side Strasbourg.
According to L’Equipe, Boehly and partners are “interested in acquiring a 100 per cent stake”.
They recently met with the French outfit’s president Marc Keller ahead of a potential deal.
Strasbourg sit 15th in the French top flight and are within three points of the relegation zone.
It is quite the drop off from last season when they managed a sixth-place finish, narrowly missing out on European qualification.
Among the players in their current squad include Aston Villa loanee Morgan Sanson and former Paris Saint Germain and Atletico Madrid striker Kevin Gameiro.
The club is based in the Alsace region of France.
Reacting to Boehly’s interest in Strasbourg, one social media user said: “Chelsea don’t want to stop, now it’s the transfer window of clubs.”
While another added: “PSG finally getting competition”.
