Everton are searching for a new manager after sacking Ronald Koeman last week.
With just eight points taken after a summer spending, Koeman's time at Goodison Park is now up, and caretaker boss David Unsworth will take charge of today's game against Leicester City.
Unsworth's lack of managerial experience may count against him in his bid to land the job permanently, and The Sun report that Everton may turn to Sam Allardyce.
It's claimed that Bill Kenwright wants an English appointment, and he would like to bring in Allardyce, whilst director of football Steve Walsh is also understood to be a big fan.
In fact, the report states that Walsh wants Everton to appoint Allardyce whilst bringing in Craig Shakespeare as his assistant, reuniting the pair having briefly worked together with the England national team.
Allardyce, who left Crystal Palace at the end of last season, has built up a reputation for getting teams out of relegation trouble, and Everton currently find themselves in trouble, meaning 'Big Sam' is emerging as an option despite his attritional brand of football.
Meanwhile, Shakespeare – sacked by Leicester earlier this month – may be more suited to an assistant's role, and having worked with Walsh at Leicester and Allardyce with England, it may make sense for this proposed management team to form at Goodison Park, even if fans are a little underwhelmed.
