Wolves boss Nuno Santo has become the latest gaffer to be linked with Everton following the sacking of Ronald Koeman last month.

Santo has enjoyed a bright start to life in English football, leading Wolves to the summit of the Championship after accumulating 32 points from 15 matches - including 10 wins - with Tuesday’s 2-0 victory at Norwich jumping the club above Sheffield United into top spot.

However, Wolves’ fine form has reportedly caught the eye of the Everton hierarchy who, according to Guillem Balague, have contacted the Midlands club after identifying Santo as a potential candidate to replace Koeman (see tweet below).

Santo previously managed Porto and Valencia before surprisingly becoming the new Wolves manager in the summer, signing a three-year deal with the club. But, could the 25/1 shot now be swayed by the possibility of managing in the Premier League with Everton?

It’s Burnley boss Sean Dyche who remains the odds-on favourite for the job at 4/5, although he was previously as short as 3/10 with some bookmakers. Dyche, whose side are up in 7th, has been in charge of the Clarets for five years now, but could the time be right to switch jobs?

Sam Allardyce (3/1) has been teasing a return to the dugout ever since he announced his “retirement” from management back in May. The former Crystal Palace boss, and let’s not forget England, is viewed by many as a short-term fix until the end of the season, however the man himself is keen to sign a two-and-a-half-year contract (The Sun).

Caretaker boss David Unsworth has drifted out to 12/1, with Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca at 14/1, and Wales manager Chris Coleman at 16/1.
