Everton are set to make a move for former boss David Moyes if they fail to land Frank de Boer who is the favourite for the post.
De Boer resigned from his post at Ajax last week after they were pipped to the Dutch title by rivals PSV Eindhoven and he has made it clear that he would be very interested in the Everton post.
There is plenty of room for that move to fall down though and it is now being reported that former boss Moyes is a serious contender.
Moyes has been out of a job since he was sacked at Real Sociedad last November and it is thought he would be keen on a return if he got the right assurances.
“Would I consider going back? I’ve said if I get an exciting challenge and something that makes me feel I could get my teeth into it then I would be really interested,” he told The Times.
