Vitor Pereira favourite to be appointed new Everton manager after more talks; Frank Lampard remains a possibility

Former Porto boss Vitor Pereira is now the favourite to be appointed the next Everton manager following further talks, as Frank Lampard remains a possibility for the job.

However, a final decision has yet to be made with an announcement expected in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Everton are searching for a replacement for Rafael Benitez, after the Spaniard was sacked last week.


Former Fenerbahce manager Pereira has held further discussions following an initial meeting with owner Farhad Moshiri this week, while former Chelsea boss Lampard is still being considered.

No contact has been made with Derby County with regards to Wayne Rooney, who has also been linked with a possible return to his boyhood club.

Pereira was a candidate for the Everton manager’s job twice before but missed out to Roberto Martinez and Marco Silva respectively.

Vitor Pereira, who Everton are said to be interested in appointing as their new manager, would bring attacking football to Goodison Park, according to European football expert Andy Brassell.

Belgium head coach Martinez was wanted by the club, but that will not happen as the Belgium FA do not want him to leave ahead of the World Cup in November.
