Andros Townsend says he's got 'fear' about what Everton are reportedly planning right now
The search for the next Everton boss search continues in wake of Carlo Ancelotti’s shock return to Real Madrid.
The Toffees have just finished a Premier League campaign that promised a lot but delivered very little.
However, there was optimism about next season, with the world-renowned Ancelotti continuing to build a high-quality team.
That’s no longer the case, and Everton are back to square one looking for a new manager to take the Blues reins.
According to talkSPORT, the Toffees are eager to bring former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo to Goodison.
Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri is reportedly keen on the Portuguese coach.
On Tuesday, Sky Sports claimed that Crystal Palace led the way for Nuno.
And Palace winger Andros Townsend admits he’s concerned about Everton reportedly throwing their name in the hat.
“If it is Nuno, or a manager of Nuno’s ilk, then it would be great for the club,” Townsend told talkSPORT.
“He is… proven in the Premier League, has taken Wolves up from the Championship, and got them into Europe.
“If it happened, it would be a great appointment.
“But I’m sure there’s a long way to go before he’s announced. I’m sure they’ll be interviewing other people.
“Everton are now in the hunt for a manager, so I fear he may be somebody they look at as well.
“Unfortunately, there’s a lot that goes on before they sign on the dotted line.”
Others who could be the next Everton boss
The Independent has listed a number of candidates who could replace Ancelotti at Everton.
Eddie Howe is currently a free agent and is still available after talks with Celtic reportedly broke down.
Antonio Conte is also without a club at present after leaving Inter Milan just after winning the Serie A title.
David Moyes is currently at West Ham, so his appointment wouldn’t be as straightforward.
And Rafael Benitez is a Liverpool legend, so would he actually consider linking up with their city rivals?
