Everton chiefs are lining up Roberto Martinez to take over in the summer if  David Moyes decides to leave the club.

David Moyes has been manager of the Toffees for 11 years now and his contract expires this June. He has refused to commit to a new contract until the summer stating that he wants to concentrate on Everton’s season and qualify for a Champions League place, according to The Daily Mail.

It is thought that Moyes will discuss his future with Bill Kenright in the summer, but if he decides that his future is no longer with the Merseyside club then Kenwright will be hoping to bring in Roberto Martinez as a replacement.

The Wigan manager who turned down a job offer from Liverpool last year is also being considered by Chelsea as a possible replacement for interim manager Rafa Benitez but it is likely that Everton will appeal to him more. Wigan are facing a relegation battle and close advisers believe it is time to move on.

If Everton lose David Moyes in the summer it will be a huge shock for fans who idolise their fiery manager. Everton have done well in recent years under Moyes and they will be hoping to keep him at the club.
