Everton fans are baffled by reports linking the club with a move for Arsene Wenger.
According to the Daily Star, Everton are hoping to convince Arsene Wenger to take over from Sam Allardyce at the end of the season.
The pressure on Wenger has increased ten fold in recent weeks, as Brighton heaped more misery on the Frenchman at the Amex stadium on Sunday.
Wenger’s men lost 2-1, their third loss in a week, and are now 13 points adrift of the Champions League places.
Everton aren’t exactly in top form either, the Toffees made it five away defeats on the bounce at Turf Moor on Saturday, crumbling in the second half after showing some good signs to start the match.
Much like Wenger, the pressure on Allardyce is at an all time high, as fans have been left angered by both his tactics and demeanour.
It would seem that Farhad Moshiri is already planning for life without Allardyce. The Iranian-born businessman was supposed to usher in a new era at Goodison Park, but his big money signings have far from convinced.
While some Everton fans have been welcoming the links to Wenger, most have been left bemused by the news. Some of the best twitter reactions can be found below…

So not alone have we become a Nursing Home for ex Man Utd players at the end of their careers, now we're taking in a Manager to look after them in the Day Room. Jesus no.

I think Wenger will leave or be sacked soon. With his experience I'd have him at Everton. He needs a new challenge and knows what it's like to finish in Top 4 regularly.
