As reported by The Daily Mail, Everton are tracking Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca as a potential replacement for Sam Allardyce during the summer.
Allardyce has overseen roller-coaster results at the Toffees since arriving at the end of November, evident this week after being thrashed 5-1 away to Arsenal last weekend before winning comfortably against Crystal Palace this weekend.
The Daily Mail report that owner Farhad Moshiri is growing frustrated with the lack of return in investment he’s made into the first team over the last 12 months and could make a managerial changed based on Allardyce’s results over the next few months.
One man they’re looking at to replace the former England manager is Paulo Fonseca, say the paper, who is currently enjoying successful reign at Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar Donetsk.
There’s been a fast-moving revolving door at Everton since Moshiri took ownership of the club which has brought benefits but also massive problems to the Toffees.
Both in the dugout and on the pitch, there’s been a severe lack of stability at Goodison Park and if they’re ever going to progress into a consistent top six outfit in the English Premier League that’s something they’re going to need.
They need to take small steps and show loyalty to staff and players, otherwise they’ll dig a deeper hole for themselves.
There’s no doubt that Fonseca is an attractive option given his trophy wins and European progression at Shakhtar, but Everton need to see the Sam Allardyce reign through to its completion and it’s doubtful that comes naturally this summer.
