Former Chelsea boss Graham Potter a ‘top target’ of Ligue 1 club

Ex-Chelsea head coach Graham Potter has been identified as a leading managerial target on the part of Ligue 1 outfit OGC Nice, according to reports.

Englishman Potter, of course, has been out of work since last month, after being relieved of his duties at Stamford Bridge following just seven months in charge.

Prior to his stint in west London, though, the 47-year-old had been held in altogether high regard across the English football landscape.

And, if the latest word doing the rounds in the media on Friday evening is anything to go by, then, evidently, Potter’s reputation remains intact on the continent, too.

As per a report from French outlet Nice-Matin, the one-time Brighton & Hove Albion headmaster is being considered as the next manager of Ligue 1 club Nice.

Amid an ongoing search for a long-term replacement for current boss Didier Digard, Dave Brailsford, INEOS’ Director of Sport, is keen to bring a British tactician to the Allianz Riviera.

Potter, in turn, has been identified as a leading target.

Disagreement, though, remains at Nice, with Bologna boss Thiago Motta also in the sights of leading members of Les Aiglons’ board.
