Nuno has performed a highly impressive job at Wolves since taking charge at the start of the season.

The Portuguese boss has knitted together a cosmopolitan squad at Molineux, and guided Wolves to the top of the Championship.

Wolves now appear to have a great chance of being promoted, and Everton have been impressed by the 43-year-old boss.

Wolves manager Nuno Espírito Santo looks on during the pre-season friendly match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leicester City at Molineux on July 29, 2017 in Wolverhampton, England.

The Toffees are now considering putting Nuno in charge, as they attempt to find a replacement for Ronald Koeman.

Koeman was dismissed last week, after what has been a disastrous opening to the campaign for the Merseyside club.

Nuno’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is now said to be seriously considering Everton’s offer - as the Wolves boss weighs up his options.

At the moment the bookies’ consider Sean Dyche and Sam Allardyce as the favourites to land the Everton job.
