Since Ronald Koeman was sacked as Everton manager, a number of footballing figures have been linked to the role.
At the moment, Under-23s coach David Unsworth has the reins, but it is uncertain who will be appointed on a permanent basis.
One man who has been linked to the position is former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel, who has been out of work since leaving the Bundesliga outfit at the end of the season.
Last week, The Mirror reported that the German is Everton’s top target and contact has already been made with his representatives.
The publication added that Tuchel will not rush his decision, particularly as Bayern Munich could be circling as they are looking for a permanent successor to Carlo Ancelotti.
Joey Barton, who had a spell at Everton’s academy as a youngster, believes that there is no way that Tuchel will take charge at Goodison Park.
The midfielder took to Twitter to explain his reasons why.
Everton ain't getting Thomas Tuchel. He won't be naive enough to take a job in foreign country in the middle of a season. https://t.co/o7SN9rOWhY
