Chelsea have opened talks with Michael Edwards but must clear two hurdles if they are to convince Liverpool's former sporting director to accept a similar role at Stamford Bridge.

Todd Boehly has been on the trail of Edwards since he left Anfield at the end of last season, as he searches for the best way to fill the void left by Marina Granovskaia's exit.

New co-owner Boehly has boldly shouldered the responsibility of leading Chelsea's hectic summer of transfer business, with head coach Thomas Tuchel also playing an active role.
