Mauricio Pochettino has turned down an initial approach to replace Graham Potter at Chelsea, sources have told 90min.

Chelsea boss Potter is under increasing pressure at Stamford Bridge after winning just one fixture in 2023, with the club sitting tenth in the Premier League table after 23 matches.

They are 11 points outside the Champions League places and have won only eight league games all season, despite a squad investment of around £600m since a consortium led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital Group took over the club last year.
