Everton reportedly already lining up a replacement for Sam Allardyce

According to reports, Everton are considering Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca as a possible replacement for Sam Allardyce during the summer.

Big Sam was appointed as manager of the Toffees in November after the club started off the season in poor form under Ronald Koeman.

Though the arrival of the tactician heralded improved results at the beginning, the Merseysiders have been less than impressive recently and only recorded their second win from 10 games as they went on to defeat Crystal Palace 3-1 on Saturday.

After making a number of bad signings  this season, the Toffees may look to change their management during the summer and could also replace current director of football Steve Walsh with PSV Eindhoven Sporting director Marcel Brands.

Fonseca’s current deal with Shakhtar will expire at the end of the season and he is surely going to move to one of the world’s elite leagues.

Interestingly along with Liverpool, Shakhtar are the only other team that have defeated Manchester City this season as they recorded a 2-1 win in the Champions League against Pep Guardiola’s men in December.
