Report: Everton agree terms with 'unquestioned success'; becomes Moshiri's sixth manager in six years
Everton have agreed terms with Nuno Espirito Santo over their vacant manager’s role.
According to The Telegraph, the Blues are set to iron out the final details over the weekend.
Santo has been one of the front-runners to replace Carlo Ancelotti since the Italian left for Real Madrid.
David Moyes was the club’s other prime target, however, he agreed on a new three-year deal with West Ham.
The former Wolves man is expected to receive a formal offer from Fahad Moshiri over the next few days. He will become the owner’s sixth manager in six years.
The Portuguese figure left his role as Wolves manager at the end of last season.
TBR View: Agreement of terms with Nuno a sign of desperation for stability from Everton
The agreement of terms with Nuno is a sign of desperation in securing some form of stability from Everton.
Six managers in six years is a horrible sign of the lack of direction from the Merseysiders.
It’s part and parcel of the reason they struggle to break into the upper echelons of the Premier League.
However, with a deal for Nuno close to completion, there is hope of a brighter future.
His impact on the Molineux Stadium outfit was brilliant. The 47-year-old took the club from the Championship to the top-half of the top-flight and Europa League in just three years.
And it’s not like the impact was a fluke. There was a well-thought out plan in place for the Midlanders.
A mix of Everton’s desire to spend and Nuno’s managerial intelligence, the Goodison Park side can make strides next season.
The first port of call for the coach will be to undergo surgery on the first-team squad. Ancelotti alluded to the need for an overhaul last season when he questioned the mentality of the players.
There seems to be desperation in securing stability at the northwest club. An appointment of Nuno would be the best outcome in achieving that.
