Leicester City are plotting a move to make former Chelsea boss Graham Potter their next permanent manager.
Potter has been out of work since being sacked by the Blues last month and has already talked with Ligue 1 side Nice about moving to the south of France this summer. Still, according to Football Insider, the Foxes have stolen a march on the 48-year-old, who is reportedly keen to get back into management after just six weeks out of a job.

Leicester are expected to cut ties with current boss Dean Smith at the end of the season, even if they stay in the Premier League this season with a defeat tonight at Champions League-chasing Newcastle United effectively ending their nine-year spell in England’s top flight.
Englishman Potter was heavily praised for his job at Brighton and Hove Albion, who secured European football next season yesterday under new manager Roberto De Zerbi, who has been nominated for Premier League manager of the season.
