Graham Potter is once again linked with the Tottenham job – with the Brighton manager apparently being watched if Antonio Conte leaves this summer.
Potter, who took charge of Brighton and Hove Albion in 2019, was seen as a leading candidate for the job in north London before Conte’s appointment.
Now, according to The Telegraph, the Seagulls manager is the favorite for the Tottenham job if the incumbent Conte decides to head out.
Conte, who has been in charge of Tottenham since November, has consistently refused to say whether he will be at the club next season, recently revealing his future will be decided after an end-of-season meeting with chairman Daniel Levy and football management. director Fabio Paratici.
He is heavily linked with Paris Saint-Germain, with Mauricio Pochettino set to be sacked this summer despite winning the Ligue Un title.
It looks like Spurs are now making tentative plans should Conte leave, with Potter on their radar.

The Telegraph, however, claim it would take at least £10million in compensation to get Potter away from Brighton.
The 46-year-old moved from the Swans to the Seagulls at the start of the 2019/20 season, with the Sussex club paying Potter’s former club £3million in compensation.
In his first season on the south coast, Potter guided Brighton to their highest level of points (41) and goals (39) in the Premier League, equaling their best result (15th) and, ironically, taking the double on the Spurs rivals. Arsenal in stride.
He led his side to the same total points in his second campaign in charge, and has continued to lead his side away from the relegation zone this season – attracting interest from big clubs.
