Everton Talks booked with Martinez

Bill KenwrightEverton chairman Bill Kenwright will meet with Roberto Martinez over the next 48 hours to discuss the manager’s role at the club.

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan reluctantly accepted Martinez’ resignation on Tuesday and spoke with Kenrwight giving him permission to meet their manager, but there is a long way to go just yet and Wigan have made it clear they want around £2m in compensation for their boss.

Martinez is keen to take the role at Everton and is likely to bring assistants Graeme Jones and Kevin Reeves with him if he gets the chance.

He may not stop there either as Paraguayan centre-half Antolin Alcaraz is at the end of his contract at Wigan and would be available on a free and striker Arouna Kone has a £6.5million release clause in his contract so he too could be a target.

There would certainly be others linked with a switch but first Martinez will hold his talks with Kenwright about the vacant position at Goodison Park.
