Everton came close to signing former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo after Carlos Ancelotti returned to Real Madrid. The Toffees have since been on the lookout for a new manager. Ancelotti left the club after their underwhelming performance this season which ended with a 10th place finish
Nuno was favored to join the club after he ended his four-year stint with Wolves who were 13th at the end of the season after they were plagued with injuries. Everton could sign Nuno for £17.17m which includes initial pay as well as bonuses. He is facing tough competition from former boss David Moyes who is competing for the job alongside ex-Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez. Ligue 1’s Christophe Galtier is also on the list of prospects. They need to make a decision soon as the time is running out.
