Would Everton be able to attract Carlo Ancelotti if they dismiss Ronald Koeman?

Former Rangers and Queens Park Rangers midfielder Ray Wilkins seems to have suggested on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, October 2, 2017) that ex-Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti may not be interested in taking charge of Everton at the moment.

Ronald Koeman is currently in charge of Everton, but the Dutchman has come under pressure in recent weeks due to the team’s disappointing start to the season.

According to The Sun, Everton are already looking at replacements for the former Southampton manager and are interested in ex-Watford boss Walter Mazzarri.

Former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss Ancelotti is without a managerial job at the moment, having recently been sacked by German and European giants Bayern Munich.

Former Manchester United and Chelsea midfielder Wilkins worked as an assistant manager under Ancelotti at Stamford Bridge.

Wilkins said on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, October 2, 2017) when asked if Ancelotti would be interested in Everton: “I think Carlo just enjoys working in football, but you have got to have the equipment to work with as well.

“He would look at Everton and think, 'Well, where is the next goal coming from?' That’s what he will be thinking about.”
