Marco Silva © Provided by Irish Independent Marco Silva Everton have opened talks with Marco Silva to become their new manager after formally ending Sam Allardyce’s acrimonious reign on a day the axe fell with frequency at Goodison Park.

Director of football Steve Walsh was also dismissed within hours of Allardyce, along with the outgoing manager’s backroom staff. Walsh is replaced by Dutchman Marcel Brands, who immediately prioritised appointing the next head coach. Meetings with Silva’s representative were stepped up instantly.

Silva was Everton’s first choice when Ronald Koeman was sacked in November, so there is no surprise his agent, Carlos Goncalves, was swiftly contacted with another recruitment process under way.

Everton to make managerial decision next week

  Everton to make managerial decision next week Everton will make a decision on the future of Sam Allardyce next week, according to a report from The Guardian. Allardyce is expecting talks with Farhad Moshiri in the coming days, despite reports claiming that agreements have already been put in place for next season. The former England boss has already been talking up his summer plans with transfer targets being lined up, despite his future remaining up in the air. Fans have been venting their frustration towards the club over their stance with Allardyce and are being urged to make a new appointment over the summer. Marco Silva and Paulo Fonseca have both been heavily linked with the job should Allardyce leave the club at the end of the season. Allardyce was given a two-year deal when he joined the club to ease their relegation worries earlier in the season. Since arriving at Goodison Park, Allardyce has led the Toffees into the top half with an eighth-place finish looking likely.

Steve Walsh faces the sack as director of football after Everton £239m recruitment drive flops. Last week's collapse at Arsenal was the sixth time this season Everton have conceded four or more goals in a game and Allardyce is concerned at how deep-rooted the issue has become.

If appointed manager, Allardyce is unlikely to ever go down as a fans favourite at Goodison Park even if he does keep the club from sliding out of the Premier League. After allowing Koeman and Director of Football Steve Walsh to spend £150 million over the summer

Watford are seeking compensation from Everton so it may yet cost £8 million to settle differences with the Vicarage Road club, who reserve the right to pursue a Premier League complaint for an alleged ­illegal approach to their ex-coach dating back to before Silva’s sacking in January.

Silva still favourite for Everton job, but not the only option

  Silva still favourite for Everton job, but not the only option Marco Silva remains the favourite to replace Sam Allardyce as Everton manager, but there are other names in the frame. The Liverpool Echo report that Eddie Howe is another candidate being considered by the club’s hierarchy, as a result of the job he’s done at Bournemouth. New director of Football Marcel Brands doesn’t officially start his role until next week but is reportedly playing a key role in the appointment. Silva’s most recent job was with Premier League rivals Watford, where he was sacked in January of this year. The Hornets cited an “unwarranted approach by a Premier League rival” earlier in the campaign as one of the reasons for their downturn in form, and that club is believed to be Everton. Prior to that, Silva had been at Hull, Olympiakos, Sporting Lisbon and Estoril. Allardyce was sacked last week despite guiding the club to eighth place in the league, with the unsatisfactory style of play thought to be the main reason for his departure. It is believed the Toffees are keen to appoint his successor by the end of this week, to give him sufficient time to alter the squad.

Everton have reopened talks with Sam Allardyce about becoming their next permanent manager, Sky Sports News understands. Allardyce has been the preferred choice of Everton director of football Steve Walsh but Moshiri has, until now, had other ideas.

Everton’s majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri had concluded due diligence on Silva before feeling compelled to appoint Allardyce.

It is hoped Silva will bring youth, dynamism, ambition and a pacier style to Goodison Park, something the supporters feel was lost in a torturous campaign which has seen three managers try and fail to secure their position.

Allardyce makes admission over Everton sacking

  Allardyce makes admission over Everton sacking Sam Allardyce has conceded that he was well aware of Everton’s plans to sack him this week. Speaking to talkSPORT for the first time since his dismissal, as reported by BBC Sport, the former England manager opened up on how he discovered that his sacking would be little more than a formality. “It seemed to be done and dusted through the media. I think it was out there in the open for a couple of days. That leaves you with the certainty of what was going to happen.” Allardyce was appointed to steer the club away from the danger of relegation from the Premier League midway through last season and successfully achieved this, leading them to an 8th-place finish. However, the Toffees fans grew increasingly impatient with Allardyce’s tactical approach and expressed their discontent via social media and at the final games of Everton’s season. The Toffees’ hierarchy are now on the lookout for a new permanent manager, with former Watford and Hull City manager Marco Silva seemingly in the frame. Silva was eyed to replace Ronald Koeman at Goodison Park before the turn of the year, however, Watford were adamant that the promising manager would not exit Vicarage Road. He was sacked shortly after this debacle, however, and Everton are clearly keen to pursue him once again.

Sam Allardyce set to leave Everton later this week

  Sam Allardyce set to leave Everton later this week Sam Allardyce is expected to leave Everton later this week, according to a report from ESPN FC. Whilst Everton’s results may have looked good to neutrals, a large section of the club’s supporters have become disenfranchised with the 63-year-old and the style of play that his side produces on a weekly basis. According to ESPN, sources have told them that the former England manager will be relieved of his duties later this week, and the club will immediately start looking for a replacement, with Shakhtar Donetsk’s Paulo Fonseca and former Watford boss Marco Silva at the head of their shortlist. Allardyce only took over at Everton in November after the club sacked Ronald Koeman and whilst he did guide the club away from any possible threat of relegation, the mood around the club has been dour for weeks. After Everton’s defeat to West Ham on the final day of the campaign, Allardyce admitted that he was unsure about his future and that the recent speculation about his position had him questioning if he’d still be in charge next season and if ESPN are correct, he will have been right to have concerns.

Should Allardyce be open to any Everton approach he may also ask for a level of control over transfers following what has proved to be the disastrous policy of the summer window, which was overseen by Steve Walsh , the director of football .

David Unsworth was given the chance as a caretaker, but could not acquire the necessary points during a tough run of fixtures to convince he should be retained as head coach.

Allardyce arrived just as Unsworth had overseen the most encouraging performance of the season – a 4-0 win over West Ham – and the controversy of who deserved credit for that victory summed up the divisiveness of reign. The new manager was in the stands, but Unsworth was still in charge.

Evertonians partially understood why he was given the job short-term, but did not welcome his receiving an extra year on his contract.

Premier League boss emerges as surprise candidate for Everton job

  Premier League boss emerges as surprise candidate for Everton job Everton are reportedly eyeing Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe as a possible candidate as they search for Sam Allardyce’s successor, according to the Daily Express. Allardyce was sacked this morning by owner Farhad Moshiri, after guiding the Toffees to an eighth-placed finish during his six months in charge. In a club statement, Everton said: “We have made the decision that, as part of our longer-term plan, we will be appointing a new manager this summer and will be commencing this process immediately.” Howe has gained a lot of admirers in the English game after se the job he has done with Bournemouth, keeping the Cherries in the Premier League and playing attacking football. Former Watford boss Marco Silva is currently the favourite to take over at Goodison Park, however, the BBC say that Howe could also take the Everton job if offered to him. With the news this morning that Watford are willing to take legal action against Everton for an ‘unwarranted approach’ for their ex-manager, appointing Howe could be seen as less problematic for the Toffees board.

Sam Allardyce is the favourite to become Everton manager after face-to-face talks with owner Farhad Moshiri. There has also been contact between Everton 's director of football Steve Walsh and Allardyce 's representatives to discuss who he would want on his staff.

Allardyce , who has been the preferred choice of director of football Steve Walsh , is close to managing his seventh Premier League club after leaving his role as boss of Crystal Palace in the summer.

Allardyce’s was not the only blood on the carpet on Wednesday. Six hours later, Everton announced Brands’ arrival and Walsh’s exit.

Walsh was headhunted from Leicester City having been credited for overseeing their triumphant title season. Moshiri hoped he would be equally intuitive at Goodison Park, but the return on his investment last season was pitiful. Of last summer’s deals – costing in excess of £100 million – only goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was a success.

Now the Merseyside club turns to Dutchman Brands, 56, who joined PSV Eindhoven having previously been instrumental in transforming the fortunes of RKC Waalwijk and AZ Alkmaar.

“It is a privilege to be joining Everton as director of football and I am incredibly excited to take on this challenge,” said Brands.

Everton want to make former Hull City and Watford boss Marco Silva their new manager, according to reports. The Blues are set to part ways with Sam Allardyce later this week and they want to replace him with the 40-year-old.
