Everton look set to miss out on Nuno Espirito Santo as their manager, meaning there are five options left for the Toffees.

The blue team in Merseyside were left shell-shocked when Carlo Ancelotti left for Real Madrid earlier this month, returning to the Bernabeu after six years.

It saw the Premier League’s 10th-placed side last season pursue Nuno after his departure from Wolves.

But The Telegraph have reported that they ware set to be beaten to his signature by Premier League rivals Crystal Palace.

The Eagles are filling a void left by Roy Hodgson following his retirement, they are now in ‘advanced talks’ with the Portuguese manager.

With options starting to run out for Everton, Daily Star Sport has taken a look at who is left to pursue…

Graham Potter

While his Brighton side finished just above the relegation battle this season, the manager has earned several plaudits for his side’s performances – especially against the Big Six.

Having spent seven seasons with Swedish side Ostersund to win three titles, he spent a season in the Championship with Swansea before heading to the south coast two years ago.

Potter has an admirer in Everton’s director of football Marcel Brands, according to The Athletic , which has seen his odds get slashed to 5/1.

The Toffees’ charge for European football started strongly but dwindled in the final third of the season, making the Brighton boss’ big-game appetite appealing.

Who do you think Everton should appoint as their next manager? Let us know in the comments section.

Eddie Howe

The former Bournemouth manager has been out of a job since he was shown the door in Dorset after their five-year stay in the Premier League came to an end.

He was linked to the job at Celtic for most of the last season and was in talks with the Scottish club before they broke down in preference for another boss.

With his experience of English top-flight football and ability in man management, Howe would offer something different to Everton.

David Moyes

Then again, a familiar face at Goodison Park would help to steady the ship.

Moyes spent 11 years with the club to win 218 of his 518 games in charge, helping them reach European football in four seasons.

While the move to Manchester United tarnished his reputation, the Scot’s impressive season at the helm of West Ham to reach the Europa League has seen the Toffees ‘target’ their former manager.

Everton would have a challenge securing him, though, as Moyes is expected to sign a new three-year deal at the London Stadium.

Rafa Benitez

Another manager currently in the market is the man who won the Champions League on the other side of Stanley Park with Liverpool 16 years ago.

The Spaniard, who recorded a 55.4 per-cent win rate from 350 games with the Anfield side, has also overseen Premier League football with Chelsea and Newcastle.

But he is without a club right now, leaving Chinese Super League side Dalian Professional in January due to Covid-19 fears.

Despite his history at Anfield, Everton would jump at the chance to hire a proven winner that knows how to build a title race-worthy team.

Antonio Conte

Tottenham’s loss could be Everton’s gain after the Italian, who won the Premier League with Chelsea in 2017, parted ways with Inter Milan.

Fresh from winning a first Serie A title for the San Siro club in 11 years, he is on the longest odds at 14/1 but could follow the path trod by Ancelotti from Italy to the English top-flight.
