Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to speculation linking Sam Allardyce with Everton.

According to Sky Sports, Everton have agreed a deal with former Newcastle United and West Ham United boss Allardyce to be their new manager.

It has also been reported that Sammy Lee will join the Englishman as assistant manager.

Lee, 58, is a former Liverpool midfielder who played for the Reds in the 1970s and the 1980s.

The former England international won the old Football League First Division title thrice, the League Cup on four occasions and the European Cup once with Liverpool.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher has given his verdict on Allardyce and Lee on Twitter, suggesting that they would be good appointments for Everton.

Sam Allardyce, Manager of Crystal Palace looks on after the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Hull City at Selhurst Park on May 14, 2017 in London, England.

David Moyes, Manager of Sunderland gives his team instructions during the Premier League match between Arsenal and Sunderland at Emirates Stadium on May 16, 2017 in London, England.

Everton will face West Ham United at Goodison Park in the Premier League this evening.

It will be David Moyes’s second game in charge of West Ham and will see him return to his former club Everton.

Ahead of the game, the Scotsman has claimed that in his last season at Everton, he was one striker short of finishing in the Champions League places.

“In my last year we were desperate for a striker,” Moyes told The Daily Mail. “Everton were a striker short of being top four. You were still needing somewhere like £10 or £15m to get a top striker. We had a million left.”
