The run has left Potter under increasing pressure, with a section of fans calling for his sacking.

Chelsea keen on Glasner

Reports now suggest that Chelsea have identified Glasner as a possible replacement for Potter, should they part company with the ex-Brighton boss.

Bild claims that the Blues initially made contact with the Austrian while hunting for a successor to Thomas Tuchel, before they eventually settled on Potter.

The publication adds that the Bundesliga boss continues to be on Boehly’s shortlist in the event he decides to pull the trigger on Potter.

Glasner has enjoyed a significant rise to prominence after impressing since his arrival at Eintracht Frankfurt back in 2021.

The tactician led the German top flight side to a Europa League triumph last season.

Fans will hope that should Glasner get the job, he can turn the fortunes of the Blues around at long last.
