Meanwhile, the Toffees are on the lookout for a new man in the dugout after Carlo Ancelotti rejoined Real Madrid.

Celtic fans left short-changed by Sky Sports once again

According to Sky Sports, the Goodison hierarchy has been informed about Galtier as they search for Ancelotti’s replacement.

The 54-year-old is arguably one of the best free agents in the game right now.

Galtier recently masterminded an incredible Ligue 1 title triumph for Lille before leaving the club.

He led Les Dogues to their fourth French top-flight title and first in a decade as they finished one point above Paris Saint-Germain.

“I am quite simply convinced that I have done my time here, that this four-year cycle is long enough for a coach,” Galtier told L’Equipe.

“Having done four years, I feel inside that it’s time to leave this beautiful club, this magnificent club.

“I’m leaving Lille with an incredible result, I need something else. I don’t want to fall into a routine.”

“Christophe has all the qualities to coach in England,” Campos told Sky Sports.

“Technically he is very astute and is extremely detailed in his planning when preparing a team.

“He likes a 4-4-2 system, which would fit with the Premier League and he is a fantastic motivator in the dressing room.

“He likes to build a side with quality and youth, he is someone that can develop a team ethic, and he is also a fantastic human being.”

Galtier would be a top choice for Spurs and Everton, a manager who;d certainly tick a lot of boxes for both Premier League clubs.

As well as having won a title and being a free agent, players really like and admire him.

Nicolas Pepe, now at Arsenal, sung his praises when the two were both at Lille.

“We have a great manager, in the image of his tactics that worked tonight,” he told Canal+, via GFFN, after a 5-1 win over PSG two years ago.

“Everyday he is there for us, whether it is in terms of football or outside of football, he is a coach who adds a lot from the human side of things too.”
