Everton are reportedly weighing up a move for ex-Chelsea and Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas.
101 Great Goals claims the Portuguese tactician could be set for a stunning return to the Premier League after seeing out the Chinese Super League season with Shanghai SIGP.
AVB was famously sacked by Chelsea in 2011 following a number of bust-ups with senior players.
The Blues went on to win their first-ever Champions League trophy that season.
And although things went slightly better at London rivals Spurs, Villas-Boas also tasted the axe there.
However, it now appears that Everton are ready to roll the dice on Jose Mourinho’s former assistant after sacking Ronald Koeman five weeks ago.
The Toffees have lost all of interim David Unsworth’s five games since, culminating in a humiliating 4-1 defeat to struggling Southampton on Sunday.
And AVB could now be tasked with saving Everton from an inevitable relegation fight, just months after the club embarked on their biggest-ever spending spree in the transfer market.
However, it’s also said that the Toffees are weighing up an audacious move for Tony Pulis instead.
The former West Brom boss is known for his no-nonsense tactics and could get the job until the end of the season before a further decision is made on his long-term future.
