Edwards has gained a cult following from Liverpool fans after being able to seemingly negotiate the very best deals for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Now according to CaughtOffside, Premier League giants Chelsea and their new club owner Todd Boehly are interested in making Edwards the London club’s new Sporting Director.

Todd Boehly is looking to make an impact in his first move as club owner and it would be disappointing to see Edwards join a Premier League rivals ranks after the terrific job he’s done at Anfield.
However, the report also suggests that Edwards rejected Chelsea’s first offer put towards him, so there is still a chance he may look elsewhere for a new Director’s role.
It will be interesting to see where Edward’s next adventure will be, but fans of the Reds know that any team that acquire his services can count themselves very lucky.
