Roberto Mancini has reportedly left Russian giants Zenit St. Petersburg with rumours circulating that he is set to take over the Italy job, but Everton supporters what him to replace Sam Allardyce at Goodison Park instead.
Everton fans have become more and more disillusioned with manager Allardyce this season, as the former England boss fails to deliver the kind of consistency in style of football the Toffees require.
Sky Sports reported on Twitter that 53-year-old Mancini, who held aloft the Premier League trophy with Manchester City in 2011-12, has left his post in Russia after a disappointing season that saw Zenit finish way down in fifth place.
Mancini failed to prove successful in the Russian Cup either, being knocked out in the Round of 32 and only the Round of 16 in the Europa League. Nevertheless, it is believed that he is set to take over Italy's national side.
But Everton fans are desperate to see Allardyce replaced and want Mancini to consider a move to Merseyside instead of coaching the Italians, and have urged owner Farhad Moshiri to take action.
Despite Allardyce being contracted until the end of the 2018-19 season, one fan would have Mancini "in a heartbeat", while another described him as a "tactical genius".

If we could get him he’d be my first choice. He transformed Man City in to a title winning side— WavertreeBlue (@wavertreeblue) May 13, 2018
