Leicester make second move to appoint Graham Potter as manager but face  fight with rivals to land ex-Chelsea boss | The Sun

Although Steve Cooper is one of the alternatives Leicester is also examining, Graham Potter is their top choice to succeed Enzo Maresca as manager. Potter hasn’t had a job since Chelsea fired him in April 2023, less than seven months into his employment.

Maresca quit to join Chelsea at the beginning of the month, leaving Leicester without a manager going into their Premier League comeback. Potter had a lackluster tenure at Stamford Bridge, but his performance at Brighton has kept his reputation high. Following his departure from Chelsea, Potter has bided his time and recently held negotiations with Brighton following an interest expressed by the Dutch club Ajax.

Leicester is looking for a coach who is as forward-thinking as Maresca. Nottingham Forest fired Cooper in December. and has been considered for several positions. Most recently, he turned down Burnley’s interest following Vincent Kompany’s exit because he is keen to work in the Premier League.

After being relegated and winning the Championship on their first try, Leicester is back in the top flight, but their financial situation is unclear. The Premier League has penalized the club for breaking sustainability and profitability regulations. To help with compliance, the club may be required to sell important players, including Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, prior to the start of the season.
