As per a report from Sky Sports News, Everton have made contact with Unai Emery over the possibility of becoming the club’s new manager.
PL managerial changes
The last 3 weeks have seen 3 of the Premier League’s top clubs come to the respective decisions to part with their managers.
First, Tottenham opted to dismiss Mauricio Pochettino, before appointing Jose Mourinho as his replacement.
North London rivals Arsenal then sacked Unai Emery, on the back of a dismal spell of recent form.
Finally, last week, Marco Silva was given the boot by Everton, after the Toffees slipped into a relegation dogfight.

To this point, though, neither Arsenal nor Everton have opted to install new permanent tacticians on their respective benches.
Freddie Ljungberg and Duncan Ferguson have been tasked with interim duties at the Emirates and Goodison Park respectively.
The latter, meanwhile, got his stint in charge of his former side off to a superb start at the weekend, as Everton downed Chelsea by 3 goals to 1.
Nevertheless, though, the search for a more experienced replacement for Marco Silva appears to be well underway, with Sky Sports News having today thrown a surprise name into the ring as a candidate to take up the reins at Goodison.
The individual in question? Unai Emery.
As outlined above, Spanish tactician Emery was only relieved of his duties at Arsenal two weeks ago, but could be set for a swift return to the dugout.
It is claimed that the Everton hierarchy have already made contact with the former PSG boss, to gauge his interest in making the move to Merseyside.
Emery, though, remains undecided as things stand, and has asked for more time.
