Graham Potter is in talks to become Crystal Palace's next manager, taking over from Roy Hodgson.

French outlet Foot Mercato claim that the former Chelsea boss could find himself in another Premier League job just two months after his sacking.

While Palace are looking for a new manager after sacking Patrick Vieira earlier in the season and bringing in Hodgson on an interim basis.

The Eagles have an exciting squad, with attacking talents such as Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise.

And Potter, who has also been linked with taking over Ligue 1 club Nice, could be the man to develop them further.

The only downside is that he managed Palace's main rivals Brighton for a lengthy period of time.

Potter had a positive record in that he has won more games than he has lost - but only just.

The 47-year-old oversaw 31 fixtures, 11 of which ended in defeat. In contrast, he claimed 12 wins in the Stamford Bridge dugout.

Under Potter, Chelsea scored a total of 33 goals and conceded 31. Although 13 of the strikes under the former Brighton manager came in his first six matches in charge, when he also recorded five victories.

After that run though, things went sharply downhill, and the 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa on April 1 proved to be his last match in charge.
