ROBERTO DE ZERBI is allegedly in discussions with Brighton to become their new manager.

The Italian, 43, is currently out of work after leaving Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer.

He is believed to have started talks with Brighton already.

And the Seagulls have decided that he is the “ideal replacement” for Graham Potter, who left them last week to take over at Chelsea.
