Who will be the next Everton manager?

The pressure is beginning to mount on Everton manager Marco Silva, with the Toffees underachieving under the Portuguese. They are way behind the top six in the Premier League table and are even struggling to challenge for seventh with the likes of Wolves and Watford outperforming them so far. That has led to murmurings about Silva’s future, bookmakers have him and Claude Puel as the favourites in the next Premier League manager to leave market, leaving plenty of people wondering who the next Everton manager could be.

Having spent plenty of money on the current first team squad, signing the likes of Richarlison, Andre Gomes, Lucas Digne and Yerry Mina, much more was expected of Silva’s Everton this season. But they have failed to deliver, including in cup competitions having been eliminated from both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup early on.

Next Everton manager odds are already being offered by both Paddy Power and Betfair, despite Silva still being in charge at Goodison Park. They obviously believe that he will not last much longer, possibly due to their daunting upcoming set of fixtures. We’ve taken a look at the odds to see who the bookmakers are predicting could be in line to get the job should a change be made in the near future.

David Wagner favourite

The current favourite to become the next Everton manager is the former Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner, whose odds are currently 7/2 with Paddy Power. The 47-year-old has been out of work since leaving the Terriers by mutual consent in January, but his stock is still high after the outstanding job he did at the John Smiths Stadium. Having taken Huddersfield from the Championship relegation zone to the Premier League in just a couple of seasons, there can be no doubting his talents as a manager. The question mark would be can he do it at a higher level?

Prior to arriving in West Yorkshire his only other managerial role was at Borussia Dortmund II. He is therefore yet to manage a club you would deem as a top half Premier League side, so in that regard he is relatively untested and it would be something of a gamble. But seeing the work he has been able to do with a limited budget at Huddersfield, it is obvious that his strengths are coaching and improving players which may be what Everton need having already spent a fortune on their current first team squad.

Former Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner is the current favourite to be the next Everton manager.

Who else could be in the frame?

Mikel Arteta is the second favourite to be the next Everton manager, with odds of 9/2 with Betfair. The Spaniard is currently one of Pep Guardiola’s assistants at Manchester City, but is well regarded as being a top coach and a major factor behind the Citizen’s recent success. He would certainly be a popular appointment as a former Everton player, but having never managed before his lack of experience means that it would be a big gamble for the Toffees to take when they are looking to challenge the top six.

Third favourite is Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe, who is best priced at 5/1 with Paddy Power. The 41-year-old has been incredibly successful with the Cherries, guiding them from League One into the Premier League and subsequently keeping them there for the last three seasons. Howe encourages an attractive brand of football and has shown his excellent ability as a coach with Bournemouth and it is surely only a matter of time before he is given the opportunity to manage a bigger club – could that be Everton?

Eddie Howe is another named linked with Everton after doing an excellent job at AFC Bournemouth.

Also considered to be a contender is Paulo Fonseca, a man who has been linked with various jobs in England over the past couple of years. The Portuguese is the current manager of Shakhtar Donetsk and it is fair to say that he has enhanced his reputation whilst working in Ukraine. He has won 80 of the 104 games he has managed with the club and won two league titles and three cup competitions. Having also managed at Porto and Braga he has good experience managing at a high level including in the Champions League, could Everton attract him to the Premier League? Fonseca is currently 11/2 to become the next manager at Goodison Park.

Another name in the frame include former manager David Moyes, who has been out of work since leaving West Ham in the summer of 2018, at 6/1. He managed Everton for 11 years between 2002 and 2013 before leaving to join Manchester United and was extremely successful at Goodison Park. Rafael Benitez and Sean Dyche are both listed at 12/1 respectively, whilst Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is also on the market with odds of 14/1 – all with Paddy Power.
