Leicester City intends to approach Graham Potter about being their next permanent manager, according to rumours from sources.
Since being fired from his position at Chelsea only hours after Brendan Rodgers was fired by Leicester, the 48-year-old has remained jobless. After taking a little leave from managing after this season, Potter is anticipated to get several offers from prestigious English and overseas teams.
Even if Leicester avoids relegation, Dean Smith, who was selected to succeed Rodgers, is not expected to last. Going into their final two games of the season, beginning with Monday night’s trip to Newcastle United, that appears doubtful.
With only two games left in the current season, the Foxes are now ranked second-to-last in the Premier League. With games remaining against West Ham and fellow underachievers Newcastle, Smith’s team is three points from safety.
After a little less than seven months in command of the London club, Potter was fired by Chelsea. The Blues had 31 games under his management, winning 17, drawing nine, and losing 12. Chelsea lost any chance of playing in Europe next season as Potter oversaw defeats in the League Cup, FA Cup, Champions League, and Premier League.
