New Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly will host an informal dinner with his Premier League counterparts, according to reports.

The American businessman, who also co-owns the LA Dodgers, completed the $4.25billion takeover of the Premier League giants alongside Clearlake Capital in late May.

Boehly has now arranged the dinner with his counterparts after the 20 executives from soccer’s English top-flight gather for their latest shareholders’ meeting in London on Tuesday, according to The Athletic.

Although not every member of the group is reportedly able to attend, Boehly’s gesture is said to be well-received by his peers.


His reign of the London club has fully taken off with the Blues heading to the owner’s home for pre-seaso


But their preparations have hit some turbulence. Thomas Tuchel’s side have performed poorly here in the States, just when Boehly and Co wanted to show off their exciting new project.


They won their first match, a 2-1 victory over Club America, but have since lost to Charlotte in a penalty shootout, and then were thrashed by English rivals Arsenal last weekend.
