Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the shortlist of managers to replace Graham Potter at Brighton and Hove Albion following the latter’s move to Chelsea.

Solskjaer has been in the news in recent days for calling Manchester United about Erling Haaland when the striker was playing at Molde. However, as per The Athletic, the Red Devils didn’t take advantage of the recommendation and failed to sign the prolific forward.

United’s decision to not push for Haaland, who has had a phenomenal start to life at Manchester City, yet again underlines the poor transfer strategy of their recruitment team.

The Norwegian striker isn’t the only young talent that United missed out on following Solskjaer’s suggestion. The club legend also wanted Jude Bellingham at Old Trafford before the Englishman joined Borussia Dortmund.

The 49-year-old’s man management and talent identification have always received plaudits, and have made him a very good option for clubs who tend to regularly look for talents before they are in the limelight.

Brighton’s recruitment strategy in recent seasons has been one of the best in the Premier League, and they could prove to be an ideal management option for Solskjaer to consider.

As per Jeunes Footeux (via SportWitness), the former United manager has been ‘mentioned internationally’ by those in charge of Brighton.

Meanwhile, Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed that the English outfit are in talks with former Sassuolo manager Roberto De Zerbi.
