Everton have approached Championship side Wolves for manager Nuno Espirito Santo, according to reports.

The Toffees sacked Ronald Koeman as manager on 23 October, after his side fell into the relegation zone following a 5–2 home defeat against Arsenal.

The Portuguese coach meanwhile has settled into Championship life perfectly, with his Wolves side currently sat top of the table after 15 games.

His efforts have not gone unnoticed, as according to Sky Sports’ Spanish football “expert” Guillem Balague.

He wrote on Twitter: “Everton have contacted Nuno as one of the potential candidates to replace Koeman.

“His agent Jorge Mendes is listening, no decision made yet.”

Santo was sacked as manager of Porto towards the end of last season in his first campaign in charge of the Portuguese club, and took the helm at Wolves at the end of May.

The 43-year-old has managerial experience with another Portugal-based side in Rio Ave, as well as La Liga giants Valencia.
