Everton’s search for a new manager looks set to continue as their latest approach for Marco Silva has reportedly been rejected.
A report in the Daily Express claims that the Toffees made a second bid of £8.5million to try and prise Silva away from Vicarage Road.
However, the Hornets have once again rebuffed the Merseyside club in their attempts to appoint a successor to Ronald Koeman.
According to the Daily Mail though, Silva wants to speak to Everton chairman Bill Kenwright, but the fact that no release clause was agreed in his deal means that negotiations are tough.
The former Hull boss has guided Watford to ninth in the Premier League table and is much sought-after.
Everton are also believed to have spoken to ex-England manager Sam Allardyce at the weekend, but nothing has materialised from the talks.
