According to Sky Sports, the Spaniard is close to landing the Goodison Park hot seat after positive talks. He was thought to be the club’s number one choice to replace Carlo Ancelotti following his exit to Real Madrid.

The 61-year-old has managed a raft of other Premier League clubs. He was in charge of Liverpool, Chelsea and Newcastle United. Benitez then left England to take up a new challenge with Chinese side Dalian Yifang.
