The Toffees are set to appoint the former Napoli, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, and Juventus manager as the club’s head coach in the coming days.

Everton are set to appoint Carlo Ancelotti as the club’s next permanent manager before the end of this week, as per a report from Sky Sports.

The 60-year-old Italian manager was sacked from his job at Napoli earlier this month and isn’t likely to wait until the end of this season to take up his next appointment.

His arrival at the Goodison Park will be a huge coup on the part of the Toffees who have struggled to attract big names to the club in recent years.

Provided he ends up taking over the club’s reins, the former Real Madrid manager will likely make a few changes to the squad that is currently languishing perilously close to the relegation places.

While their poor position in the Premier League table indicates otherwise, Everton spent over €100m on new signings ahead of the start of the 2019/20 season.

The Toffees paid €28m to Serie A giants Juventus to bring teenage sensation Moise Kean to the club and they also secured the services of Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi in a €30m deal.

Efforts were made to strengthen the club’s midfield department as well with the club paying a combined sum of €50m to sign Andre Gomes and Jean Philippe Gbamin from Barcelona and FSV Mainz.

Former manager Marco Silva also tried to add pace and trickery to the club’s full-back department by securing a season-long loan of Djirbel Sidibe from the French side Lyon.

Despite bringing in so many promising players, the Merseyside club were unable to make their mark in the Premier League, with poor results costing Silva his job.

Why Ancelotti is a huge coup for Everton?

For a club that has failed to win a single trophy in more than two decades, the appointment of the 3 times Champions League winning manager is a huge coup on the part of Everton.

The potential arrival of the Italian will pave the way for the club to secure big-name signings, something they have struggled with in the recent past.

His appointment will also be a promise fulfilled on the part of club chairman Farhad Moshiri who had assured Everton fans after taking over the club that he intends to bring a ‘Hollywood’ manager to the helm.

Mr. Moshiri must have thought he had stood by his end of the bargain after he appointed ex Barcelona midfielder Ronald Koeman, though the trophy-less spell of the Dutchman proved otherwise.

Still, now that Ancelotti is set to succeed Marco Silva as permanent Everton manager, the club faithful can once again dare to be hopeful about its future.
