Brighton are reportedly working to offer Roberto De Zerbi a new contract as top clubs around Europe set their sights on the Italian coach.
The 44-year-old has quickly proven himself to be one of the most exciting up and coming coaches in the Premier League, instantly transforming the Seagulls into an electric and ambitious outfit, allowing them to forget about his predecessor Graham Potter.
Brighton secured a sixth-place finish under De Zerbi in his debut season, taking them to the Europa League. This term, they’ve booked their spot in the knockout stages in Europe and sit eighth in the table, in the running for the European spots.
As reported by 90min.com, Brighton are looking to offer a new long-term contract to De Zerbi, keen to extend his current deal past the June 2026 expiration date. The Premier League club also want to raise his £10m release clause.
The Seagulls are hoping to ward off interest from Real Madrid and Napoli, two clubs who are reportedly considering picking up the coach next summer.
