Everton have been without a manager since sacking Ronald Koeman last month.

Former Toffees defender David Unsworth has taken charge of the last four matches, winning one and losing the other three.

Sam Allardyce is the bookies favourite to take over at Goodison Park but now it seems Simeone is on their shortlist.

Solhekol says it is unlikely Everton will be able to prise the Argentine away from Atletico but he is their “dream” appointment.

“Everton working hard behind the scenes to find a new manager,” Solhekol said on Sky Sports News.
