Everton are reportedly interested in appointing Southampton boss Ronald Koeman as their manager.


Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Ronald Koeman would be a good managerial appointment for Everton.

Koeman has been in charge of Southampton since the summer of 2014 and has a contract until June 2017, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.

However, there is a very good chance that the Dutchman would leave the Saints for Premier League rivals Everton soon.

According to The Guardian, Koeman’s agent has said that a deal is in place for the former Feyenoord boss to take charge of the Toffees.

Former Southampton and England international attacking midfielder Le Tissier believes that the Dutchman would do a good job at Everton.

Koeman has done a truly brilliant job at Southampton, who have qualified for the group stage of the Europa League next season.

The Dutchman would be a loss for the Saints if he leaves this summer, and Everton fans should be optimistic of a bright future under him.
