Everton are focusing on former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo to replace Carlo Ancelotti.
The Italian veteran has departed for Real Madrid, returning to a club he managed earlier in his career.
According to talkSPORT, Nuno is the favorite to take over at the Goodison Park club.
The 47-year-old left Wolves at the end of the season after four years in charge.
Nuno would be an underwhelming appointment for many Everton fans, given the pedigree of Ancelotti, who has won the Champions League as both a player and manager.
Other candidates for the post include Eddie Howe, Rafa Benitez, Frank Lampard, Joachim Low, Antonio Conte, Vitor Pereira and Marcelo Gallardo.
