Everton reportedly want 'talented' manager who David Moyes says is doing a 'very good job'

Everton are reportedly eyeing Graham Potter to replace Carlo Ancelotti at Goodison Park.

The Athletic claim that Toffees director Marcel Brands is a big fan of the Brighton & Hove Albion boss.

The 46-year-old shone at Swedish club Ostersund, steering them from the fourth tier to the top flight.

Potter also won a Swedish Cup at the club, and embarked on a solid Europa League run.

He began his managerial journey in English football by joining Swansea in 2019.

Within the space of a year he made the step up to the Premier League by taking the Brighton reins.

Potter has kept the south coast club punching above their weight and has comfortably secured another season of top-flight football.

In addition, he plays an exciting style of football, which would go down a treat at Everton.


In May, West Ham boss David Moyes waxed lyrical about Potter ahead of a Premier League meeting between the two sides.

“(Brighton) are trying to create their own model and I think they’re doing a very good job at it and have been for a few years,” the former Everton boss told

“It will be interesting to watch, Brighton are a team who I like lots of things they do.

“I hope they don’t do so well tomorrow night but I think Graham Potter is doing a very good job.

“He’s a talented young manager.

“My biggest advice to him would be keep your head down and get on with it because the job’s never easy and you never know when things can go against you.”

Potter ticks a lot of boxes for Everton, or indeed any Premier League club in pursuit of the top places.

He is a young, progressive manager with a good football philosophy who makes the most of his resources and gets players and teams punching above their weight.

That Spurs have also reportedly looked at Potter shows he’s highly sought after and if Everton can land him, they’d be getting a truly great manager.
