Everton to sack Sam Allardyce and appoint Marco Silva – but there’s ONE big problem
Allardyce is set to be told he is no longer wanted by Everton’s majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri tomorrow – just six months after appointing him.
Plans are already afoot to replace him with former Watford boss Silva.
But their is one big stumbling block to the deal being done – Silva has yet to receive a compensation package from the Hornets.
It means Watford could demand a financial package from the Toffees should he be interested in taking the job.
Everton tried to lure him to Goodison Park last November and offered as much as £12million in compensation to get their man.
Watford rejected the approach – then proceeded to sack Silva two months later citing the “unwarranted approach” from Everton as “the catalyst” for the decision.
Now Silva is top of Everton’s wish-list despite Allardyce guiding Everton to an eighth-placed finish in the Premier League.
Everton fans have been angered by Allardyce’s style of football while in charge of the Blues
Their displeasure has forced the hand of major investor Farhad Moshiri.
Everton fear going into next season with a negative mood could cause them to underperform again.
Speaking on Sky Sports last night, Allardyce said: “Who knows what is going to happen next?
“The season is finished and I am going to have a meeting with Farhad [Moshiri, the club’s leading shareholder] this week and then I will go on my holidays.”
