It has been reported that Watford manager Marco Silva does not want to jump ship and will remain at Vicarage Road.
Earlier this month, Sky Sports reported that former Newcastle United and West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce had held discussions with Everton.
According to The Times, Dyche is now the frontrunner for the managerial job at Goodison Park.
David Unsworth is in temporary charge of the first team, with chairman Bill Kenwright reportedly keen for him to take the role on a full-time basis.
Dyche is a very good manager, and the work he has done at Burnley is commendable.
Everton have a much better squad than the Clarets, and the Englishman could get the best out of the underperforming players at Goodison Park.
The season is still very early, and there is a very good chance that Everton will be able to finish in the top 10 or even in the top eight of the Premier League this season.
