Everton’s search for a permanent manager could be coming to an end as the club have made contact with Vitor Pereira, according to The Guardian

 

Talks will reportedly be underway between Farhad Moshiri and agent Kia Joorabchian during the international break and if appointed, the Portuguese will have enough time to get to know his team before Everton’s game against Newcastle.

Pereira would replace manager Rafael Benitez, who was let go after just six months at the helm, following poor results.

 

The 53-year-old was sacked by Fenerbahce in December 2021 from his second stint with the Turkish side.

 

Pereira led Portuguese giants Porto to two league titles during his time at the club. He also led Chinese side Shanghai Port FC to their first-ever league title.

 

Everton are 16th in the Premier League table following the defeat against Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa, two places above 18th placed Newcastle with just 4 points separating the two. 

 

Moshiri is under immense pressure from the Blues faithful to get his 7th managerial appointment in 6 years right.
