Everton close in on Spaniard

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez

Everton are closing in on making Roberto Martinez their next manager, according to the Daily Mail.

The Wigan manager has flown to Spain to consider his future with the Latics, after discussing his position with chairman Dave Whelan. The club were relegated from the Premier League after losing 4-1 at Arsenal just days before the final weekend of the season.

Everton have eyed Martinez as David Moyes’ replacement, who has now left the club to become the new boss at Manchester United.

Steve Clarke, Vitor Pereira, Malky Mackay and Neil Lennon have also been tipped for the Toffees job, however reports are emerging that the club are ready to formally approach Wigan about Martinez.

However, Whelan will be hoping that the club’s ambitious plans for the Championship, coupled with their FA Cup success, will be enough to convince Martinez to stay at the club.
