Scot still to agree new deal with Everton.
Chelsea are said to be seriously considering making Everton manager David Moyes their next full-time manager, according to reports in the Sunday Telegraph.
At present, Rafael Benitez is in charge at Stamford Bridge, however, the former Liverpool head coach only has the reins on a temporary basis and there is an understanding in west London that it is unfeasible for the Spaniard to remain in his role beyond the summer due to the fans’ hostility towards him.
And, with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola having just been announced as the new Bayern Munich trainer from next season, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has now been forced to look elsewhere for a new coach, with a number of names said to be currently on the Russian oligarch’s short list, including the likes of Atletico de Madrid’s Diego Simeone, Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp, Swansea City’s Michael Laudrup and the German national team manager Joachim Low.
However, it is understood that the Chelsea owner is now seriously considering making a move for Moyes, who has still to agree a new contract at Goodison Park, with the Scot thought to want to wait until after the January transfer window closes to see if the Merseysiders sell any of their top players, before committing his future to the club.
