Southampton manager Ronald Koeman
The Blues are currently searching for their next manager having sacked Roberto Martinez last month.

Ronald Koeman has quickly become the hot favourite for the position this weekend after Everton pushed hard for his signature.
Indeed, it seems a move will be completed sometime next week, with the Daily Mail claiming he has already agreed terms to move to Goodison Park.
And as far as Gray is concerned, the Dutchman would be a great appointment for the club.
“I think it’s ambitious and bold but it’s exactly what they need,” he told talkSPORT.
“With the greatest of respect to Southampton, I can see the attraction if he’s thinking of doing it. It would be a great appointment for Everton.”

Should Koeman finalise a move to Goodison Park, it will be interesting to see what work he does in the transfer window this year.
It has been widely reported he will be given vast funds to spend on the playing squad, with that promise reportedly one of the key factors in convincing him to move.
A bigger issue may be him convincing players to stay, with John Stones and Romelu Lukaku having been strongly linked with big money departures this summer.
