Following Chelsea’s marching orders to the german-born gaffer, Thomas Tuchel, Brighton and Hoves Albion head coach, Graham Potter has been lined as a possible replacement for him.
Chelsea are in contact with him as they weigh their chances of getting him to start from where Tuchel stopped.
Potter still has an existing contract with Brighton, but might be open to join Chelsea which is a bigger club.
Ex Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino and ex Real Madrid boss, Zidane Zidane are also in the line-up to replace Tuchel.
Thomas Tuchel was sacked following his team uninspiring opening match in the UEFA champions league, where they were defeated by Zagreb in a 1-0 loss.
