Brighton continue talks with ex-Sassuolo coach De Zerbi

Brighton are continuing to have talks with former Shakhtar Donetsk manager Roberto De Zerbi.

The Premier League outfit are looking to replace departed boss Graham Potter, who is now in charge at Chelsea.

According to Calciomercato, the Albion are looking at 43-year-old De Zerbi as their next trainer.

He has been available since leaving Ukraine in July, while he rejected a job offer from Bologna in Italy.

Journalist Rudy Galetti does add a wrinkle to the story, stating that Juventus are also looking at De Zerbi should they sack Max Allegri in the near future.

Allegri’s job is in jeopardy, after Juventus have began this season in poor form.
