Everton have lined up former Wolves coach, Nuno Espirito Santo, and ex-coach, David Moyes, amongst the possible replacements for recently departed Carlo Ancelotti.
WUZUPNIGERIA reported that Ancelotti returned to Real Madrid officially on Tuesday six years after his departure to replace Zinedine Zidane.
However, Everton have started a hunt for a permanent replacement for the Italian and acknowledged that it had begun talks on Wednesday with the Portuguese, who has also already held talks with Crystal Palace.
According to reports former manager, Moyes who was in charge at Goodison Park between 2002-2013 is also being considered as a possible replacement for Ancelotti following a successful season with West Ham United.
"Our understanding is that Farhad Moshiri [Everton's Supremo] has been impressed by the job he did at Wolves, and he believes he is someone who can come in and work with the current squad and shape it into one that can challenge for the major honours within the game.
"Everton will open talks with Nuno later on Wednesday, but there are other potential candidates. Unsurprisingly, David Moyes has been linked with the job. He still has a family home up in Lytham St Annes, not far from Finch Farm. He's had success in the past season at West Ham, and negotiations are well advanced on a three-year deal," Sky Sports source said.
