There are reports in England that Everton want to poach Jose Mourinho to replace Rafa Benitez, as the Special One is struggling badly at Roma.
The Mirror and Sun Sport both suggest today that Mourinho could be talked into a return to the Premier League, so soon after he was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur.
Everton are considering their options after Benitez managed just two points from the last eight games.
Mou only arrived at the Stadio Olimpico over the summer and signed a three-year contract with talk of a long-term project.
The enthusiasm rapidly waned after some dismal results, losing eight games already in all competition, drawing two and winning 13.
Those included a humiliating 6-1 at the hands of Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League and last night’s 3-0 home defeat to Inter.
Mourinho repeatedly assured he had no intention of leaving Roma early, but the tension is growing all around the coach.
In recent weeks, he has complained about referees, told off the club hierarchy for providing him with a weak squad and got into rows with the media.
