Revealed: 65% of Everton fans want club to hire Simeone over Enrique

With Sam Allardyce almost certainly heading out of the door at the end of the season, according to reports, Everton owner Farhad Moshiri has now turned his attentions to devising an ambitious wish list of managerial targets for the summer.
