Former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has emerged as a genuine contender to succeed Carlo Ancelotti at Everton.

Everton held discussions with the representatives of Nuno Espirito Santo, who recently left Wolves after an impressive stint at Molineux, but talks failed to progress.

Everton's former manager helped the Hammers qualify for the Europa League after finishing sixth last season and is said to enjoy a strong relationship with the club's board.

With the potential options dwindling, Everton's owner Farhad Moshiri, according to The Telegraph, is considering a move for Benitez who arguably spent the most successful period of his managerial career across Stanley Park at Anfield.

The Spaniard is currently available after his spell with Chinese Super League club Dalian Professional came to an end and is keen on a return to the Premier League, nearly two years after a reputation enhancing spell with Newcastle came to an end.

Roberto Martinez, another former Everton boss, sacked in 2016, has also been mentioned for a potential return, along with former Lille coach Christophe Galtier and Brighton's Graham Potter.
