Big Everton manager update as talks scheduled for today, club to move fast - report
By Guy Giles
Sam Allardyce is to demand a bumper pay package and survival bonus from Everton, with the former England manager also to tell the Toffees he wants to bring in as many as ten of his own backroom staff, according to a report.
The Sun report that Allardyce is happy to enter talks with the club, but will ask for a two-and-a-half year contract and a massive survival bonus if he keeps Everton in the Premier League.
The Toffees are yet to replace Ronald Koeman after the Dutchman was sacked for their poor start to the season, and Allardyce has emerged as a favourite to land the job due to his Premier League experience.
If Everton want the services of Allardyce, 63, he will also ask to bring in his own staff, at massive cost to Everton owner Farhad Moshiri.
One of those that Allardyce may be keen to take on is sacked Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare, who worked under him during his ill-fated England tenure.

Talks between the two parties are reportedly set to begin as early as today, with Everton keen to fill the vacancy as soon as possible.
The Toffees lie in the relegation zone after 10 games of the Premier League season, having earned just eight points and two wins so far.
They are also in trouble in the Europa League, lying bottom of Group E with only one point from three games.
