This summer, perhaps more than any in recent memory, is set to be a managerial market.

With multiple big clubs already aware they need to look for new leaders, and others hovering the axe above their current man, there’s going to be lots of changes.

That also brings the prospect of change for clubs who really don’t want to, such as Brighton & Hove Albion. After Chelsea took Graham Potter from the Seagulls, there’s now endless reports of interest in Roberto De Zerbi.

Liverpool have been linked, and last week the Catalan media reported Barcelona are keen but De Zerbi would have to persuade Brighton to forget about any compensation payment.

The latter scenario doesn’t seem likely, yet if De Zerbi does go then it’s likely Brighton will have a list of potential replacements.

One of those, reports Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, could be Arne Slot. The Feyenoord manager is attracting attention from clubs around Europe, and it’s stated he could ‘earn more than €5m’ a year at Brighton.

That figure may be on the high side, but it’s largely De Telegraaf pushing home the financial strength of the Premier League compared to the Eredivisie.

The Dutchman is certainly an intriguing option and may slot well into the leadership and decision-making system at Brighton, with managers in the Netherlands often seen more as a head coach with decisions on recruitment made elsewhere.
