Todd Boehly, the owner of Chelsea Football Club, is reportedly interested in taking over French Ligue 1 club Strasbourg. Boehly, who succeeded Roman Abramovich in the summer of 2021, has already spent over £600 million on players in the past two transfer windows.
However, his tenure at Chelsea has not gone according to plan so far, as the club currently sits in 10th position in the Premier League and has suffered early exits from both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
According to reports in L'Equipe, Boehly is now keen on acquiring more clubs and has already held talks with Strasbourg president Marc Keller. Strasbourg is currently positioned at 15th in the Ligue 1 table, and Boehly is said to be interested in acquiring 100% of the French top-flight club.
It remains to be seen whether Boehly will be successful in his attempt to acquire Strasbourg, but his interest in the club suggests that he is keen on expanding his portfolio of football clubs beyond Chelsea.
