As many as 5 Brighton & Hove Albion players Graham Potter could bring to Chelsea will be discussed in this article. According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, if things go well, Graham Potter will most likely be unveiled as Chelsea’s new coach today.
“Chelsea’s contract proposal regarding the appointment of Graham Potter has been finalised. Today is the final decision,” Fabrizio Romano said on his Twitter account.
If officially appointed as Chelsea coach, Graham Potter could bring a number of Brighton players to Stamford Bridge. Of course the reason is because Graham Potter already understands the characters of the Brighton players. So, who are the players in question?
Here are 5 Brighton players Graham Potter could bring to Chelsea:
5. Robert Sanchez (Goalkeeper)
Edouard Mendy is injured and Kepa Arrizabalaga is far from consistent. Therefore, the name of Robert Sanchez can be put forward.
The Spanish national team goalkeeper recorded three clean sheets from the first six weeks of the 2022-2023 Premier League. This shows that Robert Sanchez is not an arbitrary goalkeeper.
4. Alexis Mac Allister (Midfielder)
Alexis Mac Allister is a midfielder that Chelsea can rely on to break into the opponent’s goal. This Argentine player has also appeared sharp with Brighton this season.
From the first six weeks, he scored four goals. Most recently, the number 10 holder at Brighton scored twice as the team won 5-2 over Leicester City.
3. Pervis Estupinan (Left Fullback)
With the departure of Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri, Chelsea only has one player in the left fullback position, namely Marc Cucurella. The only player in the left fullback position was also brought in by Chelsea from Brighton this summer.
Pervis Estupinan actually only brought in Brighton from Villarreal in the 2022 summer transfer market. From four matches in the 2022-2023 Premier League, he collected one assist.
2. Leandro Trossard (Left Winger)
The Belgian player has performed excellently with Brighton this season. From six Premier League games from 2022 to 2023, he scored two goals and provided six assists. Punctures and crosses are the advantages of this Belgian national team player.
1. Pascal Gross (Central Midfielder)
Pascal Gross is known as Brighton’s David Beckham. The crosses released by this German player are often deadly. He is an old man in the Seagulls squad – Brighton’s nickname. Two years before Graham Potter landed at the Amex Stadium in 2019, Pascal Gross had already worked with Brighton.
This season, the 31-year-old midfielder has scored three goals and provided two assists in six Premier League games from 2022 to 2023. It will be interesting to wait if Graham Potter officially becomes Chelsea coach. Which of the above names did Graham Potter bring to Stamford Bridge?
