Everton fans can’t decide on the latest managerial links, after a report claimed the club have made inquiries to sign Arsene Wenger.
According to Paul Brown of the Daily Star, Everton are now certain to axe Sam Allardyce this summer, despite the former England manager already making his transfer plans.
The report claims Arsene Wenger has had plenty of offers since he announced he would step down from Arsenal at the end of this season, and the Toffees have reportedly added him to their shortlist.
David Dein, the former vice-Chairman for the Gunners, is reportedly acting as an intermediary in the talks.
Wenger is yet to decide whether he will stay in coaching or move to a different role at a new club, but Everton have been making “regular inquiries” about bringing him to Merseyside.
Of course, the biggest criticism of current manager Sam Allardyce is his negative brand of football, certainly not something Wenger could be criticised for.
However, some fans have expressed concerns about taking on “rejects” from other Premier League clubs, and fans are now completely split on the links.

Mr Wenger would be welcomed at Everton. This man is football genius, he respects his players and doesn't thow them under the bus. Nothink but respect for the man. Hope he comes to us.

With Arteta as his assistant, learning from Wenger and eventually taking over, it could be a good solution.

What happened to “we want a young progressive manager” ?! I respect AW but not sure he’s what we are looking for.

Wouldn't go anywhere near him. Has no one ever notice how badly his defence is organised
