Shouldn't Everton fans be worried with Wolves boss Nuno rejecting Toffees move?

Everton have reportedly tried to land Wolverhampton Wanderers' boss Nuno Espirito Santo as their search for their next manager continues.

With Everton one of the ever-presents in the Premier League era and clearly boasting the funds to spend big as this summer showed, you would have imagined that any Championship boss would have jumped at the chance to move to Goodison Park if it was offered to them.

Despite their current position in the table, the Toffees appear to have the potential to join the division's heavyweights in time, and thus, taking the Everton job should be an ambition for most bosses in the second tier to aspire to.

And yet, Goal reports that Wolves have knocked back the Toffees' latest approach for their boss Nuno Espirito Santo - but what should arguably be all the more troubling for Everton is the fact that Goal seem to suggest that Nuno is happy enough at Wolves to ignore the interest coming his way.

Wolves are clearly going places as they top the Championship currently and have captured the imagination with a number of signings that they have made in recent times.

Nevertheless, it should arguably be worrying for Everton fans that a second tier boss appears to see more potential in the job he currently has than the one seemingly on offer at Goodison Park. 

And the Toffees fans should perhaps now be concerned that seeing a Championship boss - though the smart money suggests that they will be in the Premier League next year - turn down an Everton side that appeared to show all the intent in the world in the summer, may potentially be an indication of how tough a task finding their next manager may prove to be.
