Chelsea have now won just two of their last 15 matches across all competitions following their 2-0 Premier League defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. 

The Blues have remarkably scored just six goals since the start of November – 40 fewer than rivals Manchester United – and pressure is growing on manager Graham Potter after their latest sub-par performance.

Those in charge of the club have so far given no indication that Potter’s future at the club is uncertain, although sections of the club’s support could be heard calling for him to be sacked on Sunday.

Now, it has emerged that The Blues are reportedly eyeing a Premier League boss as a potential successor to Potter.

According to Football Insider, Chelsea are admirers of Brentford boss Thomas Frank and could consider him as a replacement for Potter if the Englishman is dismissed.

Owner Todd Boehly and those in charge of the club are said to be worried about Chelsea’s trajectory under Potter, who has overseen just nine wins from 26 matches in charge of the club across all competitions.

Frank is admired by those in charge of Chelsea

Frank, meanwhile, has enjoyed huge success since taking charge of The Bees in 2018.

Since then, the Dane has guided Brentford to promotion from the Championship and established them in the top flight.

At present, they sit ninth in the standings, one place and four points above The Blues.

It is claimed that those in charge of Chelsea admire Frank for his playing style, relationship with media and strong record of developing young players.

Since taking charge of the club, Boehly and co have overseen the arrival of 16 permanent signings, as well as two loan arrivals, costing more than £600 in total.

Potter has so far struggled to find a balance in his side though, with his team producing a number of poor performances.

Both Frank and Potter are contracted to their respective clubs until 2027, which could make it difficult for Chelsea both to sack Potter and potentially move for Frank.
