Brighton and Hove Albion boss Potter quickly became the front-runner to replace Tuchel and Chelsea have traded on a reported £16million release clause in his contract to bring the 47-year-old to Stamford Bridge.

“We are thrilled to bring Graham to Chelsea. He is a proven coach and an innovator in the Premier League who fits our vision for the club,” Boehly said in the club’s statement.

“Not only is he extremely talented on the pitch, he has skills and abilities that extend off the pitch which will make Chelsea a more successful club. He has had a huge impact on his previous clubs and we look forward to his positive impact on Chelsea.

“We look forward to supporting him, his coaching staff and the squad to realize their full potential in the coming months and years.”

Potter’s road to west London has certainly been an interesting one. He spent seven years in charge of Swedish side Ostersund, which he led from the fourth tier to the top flight and achieved domestic glory in the Swedish Cup.

His side also enjoyed a run to the last 32 of the Europa League in the 2017–18 season, where they were beaten by Arsenal.

Impressive work in Sweden led to a move to Swansea City, where he spent just one solitary season before Brighton came calling after sacking Chris Hughton.

After finishing 15th and 16th in his first two top-flight games, Potter led Brighton to ninth last term and has earned plenty of admirers for the attacking brand of football his side employ.

Potter’s first assignment will be the derby at Fulham this weekend, with the announcement saying he will take charge of the team “immediately”.
