EXCL: Potter to Lyon, the TRUTH about Cherki-Chelsea rumours, Arteta's crucial role in Arsenal transfers, Hazard retirement, and more
Today's exclusive transfer column, featuring Chelsea, Arsenal and more!
Graham Potter contacted by Lyon
I’ll start today’s piece with the news at Lyon, with Laurent Blanc sacked as manager. It was a very complicated situation between Blanc and Lyon, so they decided to part ways. As has been reported, it’s true that they had some contacts with former Chelsea and Brighton manager Graham Potter, but at the moment from what I’m hearing, Potter is not keen on that kind of opportunity and wants a different kind of challenge for his future.
So Potter to Lyon is not happening, but they had very positive conversations with Gennaro Gattuso, the former AC Milan and Napoli manager, on Monday. He’s a serious candidate for the job, and the current favourite, but he’s not the only one, because on Tuesday John Textor will continue with more interviews with more candidates for the job.
For Potter, again Lyon had some contacts but it was never that advanced, and in the last few months he’s never been close to any new job - he wants to take his time and decide his next club in the best way and in the right moment.
