According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Ronald Koeman is set to earn £6 million-a-year at Everton.

The Toffees are closing on a deal to appoint Southampton boss Koeman as their next manager, after he was made their top target to replace Roberto Martinez.

Koeman initially seemed to reject Everton’s interest, with a year left on his contract at Southampton, but he has reportedly been tempted by the package on offer at Goodison Park.

Everton are willing to pay £3.5 million in compensation to Southampton to Koeman, and they are reportedly very confident of persuading the 53-year-old to join.

Not only will Koeman become the highest paid manager in Everton history, he will also be handed a huge transfer budget to improve the Merseyside squad.
