Thomas Tuchel was sacked after Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday; Brighton boss Graham Potter will meet Chelsea owner Todd Boehly for talks; Chelsea are prepared to pay the release clause in Potter’s contract
The club have been given permission by Brighton to speak to Graham Potter, who is expected to meet Todd Boehly this afternoon.
It is thought Chelsea have made it clear they are prepared to meet Brighton’s exit clause figure. The club are also keen to speak to Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane, who are both out of work.
Boehly axed Tuchel in a face-to-face meeting just three months after completing his takeover of the club. Boehly is still acting as sporting director having moved on director Marina Granovskaia, chairman Bruce Buck and technical and performance advisor Petr Cech this summer in a complete overhaul of the Roman Abramovich era.
