Everton fans are urging the club to appoint Lucien Favre, as he appears to be edging towards Crystal Palace.

The Guardian report that Palace are keen on Favre, but they are not the only Premier League club in for the Swiss boss.

And Everton supporters are desperately hoping that they are the other club in for Favre.

A late twist?

If Everton are trying to land Favre then they have managed to keep the links fairly quiet.

It has been widely reported that Everton are now closing in on landing Rafael Benitez as their new manager.

That potential appointment has created widespread anger at Goodison Park, partly due to his strong Liverpool connections.

Everton fans’ desire to see Favre arrive is, therefore, understandable.

The 63-year-old impressed in the Bundesliga, with his sides generally playing very stylish football.

And he could be an exciting arrival at Everton, which would unite their supporters far more than Benitez’s appointment.
