Everton seem to be struggling to get in a new manager with it now being over three weeks since Ronald Koeman was sacked by the board.
The Toffees don’t appear to have any clue about where they want to take the club with widespread reports that Farhad Moshiri and Bill Kenwright are at odds with one another about what sort of manager they are looking to bring in.
The Daily Mail has recently reported that Everton had an approach rejected by Watford for their manager Marco Silva, who would also possibly cost a great deal in compensation fees having not long signed a deal at Vicarage Road.
Sam Allardyce has also been high in the running, but he has moved to rubbish any claims of talks with it being understood he wants a long-term deal if he was to rescue the Merseysiders, not a short-term fire-fighting role.
So where does that leave Everton? Sean Dyche has been one of the frontrunners with the bookmakers but nothing seems to have come of that and David Unsworth hasn’t exactly been convincing in his caretaker role.
That may force the Toffees to go abroad and look at some of the outside bets in the market to make an appointment – someone that no one was expecting last month when Koeman was sacked.
Here, Football Insider looks at three surprises names who Everton must consider after being dealt their latest blow.
