Former Liverpool attacker Stan Collymore believes that Sean Dyche would be the “perfect fit” for Everton should they decide to sack Sam Allardyce in the summer.
Allardyce was hired by the Toffees earlier this season after a prolonged search to replace Ronald Koeman.
The former West Ham and Newcastle manager did get the Merseyside club picking up results, but a dip in form has seen fans become increasingly frustrated with his tactical approach.
Collymore believes that a move for Burnley’s 46-year-old manager Dyche would be the best move for Everton to make in the summer.
“Depends if they get interest back from younger, more progressive coaches who may be available in the summer,” he said on his personal Twitter account.
“Personally I’d go for Dyche. Perfect fit for Toffees.”

Football Insider verdict
Farhad Moshiri and Bill Kenwright’s control at Goodison Park doesn’t appear to be working out as well as it was hoped. The two have very different ideas about what they want as manager at Everton and that was what led to a botched search for Koeman’s successor last year. Allardyce’s appointment seemed like it was done out of sheer desperation more than anything else and while he has done what he was expected to do, it has not left the fans very happy. Dyche has done a brilliant job at Burnley and he may have a Europa League campaign to contend with if he stays at Turf Moor. if he doesn’t, then a move to Everton would be a good choice for him.
