The Frenchman has called a news conference in London on Monday where he is expected to put himself forward for the role.


Blatter has been president since 1998 but has not confirmed whether he will be continuing to stand for a fifth term in office when the presidency election is held in Zurich in June 2015.


The 78-year-old said he would not stand for election again after he reclaimed his post at the last vote in 2011.


Champagne spent 11 years with FIFA before leaving in 2010, working closely with Blatter between 2002 and 2005.


Under FIFA rules any candidate needs to be nominated by a single national federation to be eligible for election.


UEFA President Michel Platini is also considered to be in the running for the election however the Frenchman is yet to state whether he will be in the election mix.
