Chelsea have reached a verbal agreement with Brighton manager, Graham Potter to replace Thomas Tuchel as their next head coach.
Tuchel was sacked on Wednesday after Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League and just six games into the new Premier League season.
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly met with Potter in London on Wednesday afternoon for what were described as “positive talks” about the Brighton manager’s future role at Stamford Bridge and the club’s plans to develop the whole football operation.
Those discussions continued early on Thursday morning, with the focus on the legal details of his contract and Potter’s backroom staff.
Chelsea made it clear they were prepared to meet Brighton’s release clause figure for Graham Potter.
