Graham Potter is wanted by Crystal Palace to manage the London club next season as Roy Hodgson’s brief spell at the club comes to an end.
The 75-year-old was brought in to help the Eagles secure Premier League safety after a bad streak from his predecessor Patrick Vieira left them in trouble. The former Arsenal star was sacked in March and Palace wanted to wait until the summer to appoint a new permanent manager.
According to Santi Aouna, Graham Potter is the man the Eagles want and is likely to make a move for the former Chelsea boss soon.

Potter has been out of work since being sacked by Chelsea in early April, but his shares have not suffered as much given the mess at the west London club.
The former Brighton boss was given too many players at the Blues and it is uncertain how many he actually wanted. The work Frank Lampard has done since then shows how difficult things are at Chelsea, and Potter certainly deserves a second chance in England’s top flight, and Crystal Palace is a very good project to get back into the game.
