Ray Wilkins has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 24th May, that he believes David Moyes could go back to Everton.

Moyes has been tipped as a potential candidate to take over at Everton, with the Scottish boss reportedly set for an interview in the coming days (Daily Mirror).

Moyes previously spent 11 years at Goodison Park, and Wilkins believes that the Toffees’ current squad is stronger than the one which he assembled.

“I think he could, to be honest,” Wilkins said, when asked whether Moyes could go back to Everton.

“He’s got a better squad now than when he left, but what he had when he left was that it was defensively rock solid. They haven’t been so since he left.”

Since departing Everton back in 2013, Moyes has gone on to manage both Manchester United and Real Sociedad to limited success.

If Moyes did return to Everton he would likely have much more funds to spend than he did during his first stint in charge.

Moyes worked on a budget during his time with the Merseyside club, but the investment of Farhad Moshiri is expected to give Everton much more financial power.

Moyes is still not the favourite to take over at the Toffees, with plenty of other candidates linked.

The likes of Unai Emery, Frank De Boer and Ronald Koeman have also been tipped to take charge at Everton.
