Nuno Espirito Santo would be a “really good fit” as the next Everton manager, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Leeds United and England defender backed the ex-Wolves boss to play a good brand of football at Goodison Park if he lands the job.
Football Insider understands Everton held talks with Nuno on Friday (June 4) about the possibility of succeeding Carlo Ancelotti.
This site revealed on June 2 owner Farhad Moshiri had spoken to Jorge Mendes about the possibility of the Portuegese taking over at Goodison Park.
He is the favourite for the vacancy because he is available and has close links to Mendes – the world’s most powerful agent.
“I think it would be a really good fit,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“He’s a good manager and the style of football that he’s played in the past is very, very good.
“Unless Everton go big, big, big money-wise are they going to be able to bring in a big name manager? Probably not. I’m talking the very best of managers that have won big things.
“I think Nuno would be a good manager. The structure of the football club is good and solid. So you’re bringing in somebody to play a good brand of football with a better quality than Wolves have got.”
Nuno left Wolves at the end of the season after four years in charge that saw the club rise from the Championship to the Europa League quarter-finals.
He was named as the LMA Championship manager of the year for the 2017-18 campaign as Wolves won the division.
