Former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is the strong favourite to be named as Everton’s new manager.
The Portuguese is emerging as the preferred choice of owner Farhad Moshiri after leaving Wolves at the end of last season.
Talks with Everton have progressed after the 47-year-old’s negotiations with Crystal Palace broke down.
He was on a shortlist to succeed Carlo Ancelotti along with West Ham manager David Moyes.
Former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez was also discussed.
