Chelsea have been given permission to speak to Graham Potter by Brighton, according to breaking news from Sky Sports emerging just now.
The broadcaster had barely had time to get their man in place at Stamford Bridge to respond to the news that Thomas Tuchel had been sacked before the news broke that Graham Potter had been approached.
It’s going to cost Chelsea £10m to appoint him, which is small money in the context of a window where they spent almost a quarter of a billion.

It’s nice to see them move quickly, even if you don’t agree with the decision to sack Tuchel.
Potter is now almost certain to take over – it’s incredible how fast these things can change in comparison with the year or more we can spend chasing a player in the transfer market.
After weeks of rising tension, it could now all be resolved by tonight.
