Everton and West Ham United are reportedly interested in appointing former Watford boss Walter Mazzarri as their next manager.
Mazzarri was in charge of Watford last season but although he helped the club to avoid relegation from the Premier League he was dismissed at the end of the campaign.
As reported by Football Italia, Everton are the leading contenders to appoint Mazzarri as uncertainty remains over the future of Ronald Koeman.
Despite bringing in a host of new players in the summer transfer window Everton have endured a miserable start to the season and are currently languishing in 16th place in the Premier League.
West Ham, meanwhile, are also considering making an approach for Mazzarri as a potential replacement for Slaven Bilic.
Bilic retains the backing of some sections of the club’s support, but has overseen a frustrating commencement to the campaign, with West Ham in 15th place and level with Everton on seven points.
Prior to his time in charge of Watford, Mazzarri had spent his entire managerial career with Italian clubs, which included spells with Napoli and Inter Milan.
