New Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly has organised an informal dinner with his Premier League counterparts, The Athletic understands.

Executives from the 20 top-flight clubs will gather in London on Tuesday for their latest shareholders' meeting, with Boehly’s event to follow that evening.

Not all of those invited by the American businessman are able to attend, but the gesture is said to have been well received by the group.

Boehly completed his takeover of Chelsea alongside Clearlake Capital in late May and is embarking upon his first summer in charge at a Stanford Bridge. He also co-owns the LA Dodgers baseball team.

Since arriving, Boehly has overseen a number of changes at board level. Long-term executives Bruce Buck and Marina Granovskaia are among the departures, along with technical advisor Petr Cech.

Operating as chairman and interim sporting director, Boehly is leading Chelsea’s negotiations in the transfer window — though the club are intending to appoint “a full-time replacement” for Granovskaia, who previously led recruitment activity.

Chelsea lost 4-0 to Arsenal in their most recent pre-season game, with head coach Thomas Tuchel warning after the match that he had made “an urgent appeal for quality players” and that the squad were not yet ready for the start of the season.
