Former Watford boss Marco Silva is the leading candidate to step into the Goodison Park hotseat.

He appeared to be the club's first choice last autumn when the vacancy first arose, yet the Hornets refused the 40-year-old permission to speak to the Merseyside club. He was subsequently sacked from that role as results slipped, with the Watford board claiming that Everton's overtures had caused the slump.
