Following yesterday's announcement of Roberto De Zerbi's departure, Brighton has intensified its search for a new manager.

According to The Telegraph, the club's priority is to appoint Ipswich Town's head coach, Kieran McKenna. Negotiations are expected to commence in the coming days.

In addition to McKenna, Brighton is considering Nice's head coach Francesco Farioli, who previously served as De Zerbi's assistant at Sassuolo. Another option is the potential return of Graham Potter.

Under McKenna's leadership, Ipswich sensationally earned promotion to the Premier League after a season in the Championship, having played in the third division just a year ago.

Before joining Ipswich, McKenna coached at Manchester United and served as an assistant to Ralf Rangnick, Ole Gunnar Solskjær, and José Mourinho.

With one game remaining in the Premier League season, Brighton sits in tenth place. Today, in De Zerbi's final match in charge, the Seagulls will face Manchester United.
