It has been reported by the Daily Mirror this week that David Moyes is interested in returning to Everton as pressure continues to mount on Marco Silva.
The Toffees find themselves inside the relegation zone and have lost their last four league games. The Mirror reports that a change is not set to be made during the international break. But there is surely no question that time could be running out for Silva.
Despite their frustration with the Portuguese, it appears that the Everton fans do not want Moyes back. Nevertheless, he is reportedly set to be one of the names who will throw his name in the hat if Silva goes.
And it appears that it could be one of Moyes’s former clubs who hand the Scot a boost in his pursuit to make it back to Goodison Park.
Everton’s next game pits the Toffees against West Ham. It was Moyes who kept the side in the league during a short spell at the London Stadium before Pellegrini’s arrival.
The West Ham fans never seemed to fully take to Moyes. But there was a level of respect there by the time he moved on. Not only did he keep the side up, but it was also during his tenure that Marko Arnautovic became a game-changer having previously looked hopeless.
The Hammers are doing well this term. Manuel Pellegrini’s men sit eighth, four points off second place Manchester City.
They have not lost away from home this term, winning one and drawing three. And you would be forgiven for thinking that taking three points home from Merseyside may provide a blow Silva cannot recover from.
Of course, Everton’s board may keep faith with Silva, and may not necessarily consider Moyes if they do make a change. Plenty of Toffees fans certainly hope Farhad Moshiri and Marcel Brands make no attempt to contact the 56-year-old.
But while Silva seemingly remains on the brink, and Moyes reportedly lurks, Everton supporters will remain concerned. And perhaps it may prove to be West Ham who ultimately remove one big obstacle standing between Moyes and a return to Everton that plenty do not want.
