Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been 'mentioned internally' by Brighton and Hove Albion in their search for a new manager, according to reports.
Solskjaer has been out of work since being sacked by Manchester United back in November but he would like to return.
The 49-year-old is currently back in Norway and coaching his son's U14 team, having turned down a number of jobs last season.
Jeunes Footeux (via Sport Witness) now claims Solskjaer has been discussed by Brighton as they look to replace Graham Potter.
Earlier this month, Chelsea parted ways with Thomas Tuchel and moved swiftly to appoint Potter.
It's left midfielder Adam Lallana in charge of the Seagulls until they find a successor.
Brighton are currently fourth in the Premier League table and have won four of their opening six games.
They've earned a reputation for being one of the best-ran clubs in England and will consider their options before diving into only their second managerial appointment since returning to the top-flight.
Solskjaer guided United to third and second place finishes in his two full campaigns in charge.
He was regarded as a terrific man-manager, but faltered when it came to making tactical decisions.
That's the opposite to Potter, who has a brilliant tactical mind and builds team greater than the sum of their parts.
Solskjaer has stayed away from the limelight over the last 10 months and will wait for the right moment to make a comeback.
Brighton's first-choice is said to be Italian coach Roberto De Zerbi.
The 43-year-old transformed Sassuolo into an exciting Serie A outfit before joining Shakhtar Donetsk for a crack at Champions League football.
He left the club in July amid Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Brighton owner Tony Bloom is keen to have a new permanent boss in place by October's visit to Liverpool after the international break.
