Everton are thinking big... but might have to settle for Big Sam.
It would be a pragmatic appointment for the here and now considering their poor league form, but not the long term one they need.
Often referred to as a 'super agent', Mendes' advice and connections have played a part in Wolves shaping their current Championship table topping side.
Mendes was reportedly present for the meeting, but the Ukrainian club have now blocked Fonseca's exit even though he was keen on a move.
Moshiri's efforts may not have paid off on this occasion, but Mendes is a smart contact for Moshiri to have onside.
This connection could even show benefit in the upcoming transfer window, and the Everton chief deserves some credit for trying to think big, and outside the box, even if it has not exactly been the smoothest of transitions between managers.
