After Thomas Tuchel sacking, Brighton Granted Chelsea permission to speak with Graham Potter. After firing Thomas Tuchel in the wake of a lackluster performance in the Champions League loss to Dinamo Zagreb, Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has contacted Brighton about the possibility of hiring their manager Graham Potter.

According to various reports, Boehly is also interested in having a conversation with unemployed individuals Zinedine Zidane and Mauricio Pochettino; however, Potter appears to be the early favorite for the vacant position at Stamford Bridge.

The Report

Thomas Tuchel was terminated as manager of Chelsea after their 1-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb; The owner of Chelsea, Todd Boehly, will meet with Brighton's manager, Graham Potter, for discussions; The release clause in Potter's contract has been met, and Chelsea is prepared to pay it.

Graham Potter, who is scheduled to meet with Todd Boehly later today, has been granted permission by Brighton to speak to the club, and the club has been given permission to speak to Graham Potter.

It is believed that Chelsea has made it abundantly clear that they are prepared to meet the exit clause figure that Brighton has requested. The club would also like to have a conversation with Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane, both of whom are currently jobless.

Sky Sports News has been informed that Potter has been given the assurance that, should he decide to accept the position of manager of the Chelsea football team, he will be given the time necessary to attempt to bring the philosophy and football structure to the club that both he and the club want.

Potter believes that Chelsea provides him with the best opportunity to advance his own coaching career at a world-class club, despite the fact that in recent years he has been offered the chance to speak to other top clubs and declined the opportunity.

Klopp: "We have to reinvent ourselves. Wolves would be laughing at us." This is a trending quote from Klopp. Merson claims that Zidane should start for Chelsea instead of Potter and questions why Aubameyang should be signed.

Just three months after completing his takeover of the club, Boehly fired Tuchel in a face-to-face meeting at 9.30 in the morning on Wednesday.

It is not a knee-jerk reaction to Chelsea's loss in the Champions League on Tuesday to Dinamo Zagreb, which both of the club's co-owners, Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, were in attendance for, as Sky Sports News has learned, Chelsea has been mulling over this decision for some time.

Tuchel was fired from his position as a result of an increasingly tense relationship with the owners of the company. The owners were willing to try and make things work with the Germans, but in the end, it was determined that it was not possible. Additionally, Tuchel's relationship with certain players became increasingly strained, which is not an uncommon occurrence and occurs at the majority of clubs.

After the departures of director Marina Granovskaia, chairman Bruce Buck, and technical and performance advisor Petr Cech this summer as part of a comprehensive reorganization of the Roman Abramovich era.

Boehly is still serving in the role of sporting director at Chelsea FC. Wesley Fofana, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were all acquired by Chelsea this summer in a move that set a record for the most money spent in a single transfer window in Premier League history at £273 million.

The owners are under the impression that they had a very good window, and they anticipate that a new manager will coax even more performance from the players. They had concerns for some time, and as a result, they have been looking into other possibilities.

Now, they want to make a long-term appointment to move Chelsea forward, and they want that appointment to be someone who is closely aligned with their vision for the club. Following victories over Everton, Leicester, and West Ham, as well as a draw against Tottenham and losses at Leeds and Southampton, Chelsea currently holds the sixth spot in the Premier League standings with 10 points.

According to a club statement: "On behalf of everyone at Chelsea FC, I'd like to express my appreciation to Thomas and his team for all of their efforts during their time with the club. Thomas has earned a place in Chelsea history after winning the Champions League, Super Cup, and Club World Cup during his time at the club.


As the new ownership group approaches 100 days since taking over the club and continues to work hard to move the club forward, the new owners believe the time has come to make this transition.
