Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Potter has continued to garner plaudits from fans and pundits alike this season, with his side's attractive style of football continuing to turn heads in his second season in charge of the Seagulls.

As Spurs look to pursue a radical change from the style of play offered up by Mourinho, Potter has naturally been mooted as a potential target.

Bookmakers SkyBet currently have Ajax manager Erik ten Hag, who took his side to the Champions League semi-final in 2019, down as the 2/1 favourite, ahead of ex-Chelsea and Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri.

The Brighton boss sits alongside the third-tier set of favourites, all of whom are priced at 10/1: Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers, and Fulham's Scott Parker. The former has already suggested that he's not interest in the role.

Three key Seagulls players have also been priced up in the transfer specials market: Paris Saint-Germain are the favourites to sign defender Ben White, while Arsenal have been tipped to sign Tariq Lamptey, and Liverpool are fancied to land Yves Bissouma - a player who could cost around £50m as interest in his services continue to grow.

Meanwhile, Brighton continue their preparations ahead of this weekend's clash against Leeds United, where they'll be looking to increase the seven-point advantage they have over Fulham, and secure their Premier League safety for another season.
