Moshiri, who owns a 49.9 per cent stake in Everton, reportedly had his representatives contact Allardyce’s people at the beginning of last week to judge his interest in the role.

And there has also been dialogue between Steve Walsh, the Blues’ director of football, and Allardyce’s people over backroom staff appointments.

Moshiri is leading the recruitment process to find the man to replace interim chief David Unsworth.

If he plumps for Allardyce then it is believed Big Sam would also want Martyn Margetson as his goalkeeping coach.

However, talkSPORT presenter Jim White tweeted a photo this morning claiming Moshiri had told him under-fire Unsworth “embodies the spirit” of Everton.

However, the club’s search for a new boss could be jeopardised after questions were raised over Moshiri’s ownership.

Allegations made by BBC Panorama and the leaked Paradise Papers suggest 49 per cent major shareholder Moshiri broke Premier League rules with his 2016 buyout of the club.

Unsworth oversaw yesterday’s miraculous comeback against Watford.

Goals from Oumar Niasse, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and an injury-time penalty from Leighton Baines saw them snatch three points after being two goals down.
