Plenty of names have been linked with the Everton job in recent weeks – with Sevilla boss Unai Emery one of the more optimistic apparent targets.

It was reported by ESPN recently that Everton had put him top of their wishlist for the manager role after he guided Sevilla to a third Europa League win in a row.

However, it had been suggested that Emery would not be interested in the job and his president certainly believes that is the case.

Jose Castro is quoted by FourFourTwo as stating:

"The coach has understood out character to perfection. Football is crazy, but he knows how to carry the group, the hours that he dedicates.

"I say this now in success and also at the start of the season.

"I can tell you that he has said he is not on the market and is not thinking of somewhere else."

Emery would have been an ambitious appointment for Everton considering his success at Sevilla but it looks very unlikely that he will be taking over from Roberto Martinez at Goodison Park.

Martinez was sacked before the final game of the season at the start of the month and Everton are currently on the lookout for a new manager to replace the outgoing Spaniard.

Other names linked with taking on the Everton position include the likes of Frank De Boer, Ronald Koeman and, the man Martinez replaced at Goodison Park, David Moyes.
