EVERTON are looking for a new manager following the sacking of Frank Lampard.
The former Chelsea boss was sacked earlier this week with the club in turmoil – sitting joint-bottom of the Premier League table in 19th place.
One of the potential candidates to take over at Goodison Park is ex-Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Norwegian has been out of a job since he was dismissed by the Red Devils in November 2021.
However, he has been linked with a return to the dugout, reportedly holding talks with Everton.
The club are supposedly impressed with his re-build at Man Utd and could be willing to appoint him to save the Toffees from relegation.

If Solskjaer was to join, reports suggest he could raid his former club for players.
The likes of Harry Maguire, Phil Jones and Scott McTominay could all be sold by United and the 49-year-old may consider a reunion.
Jones is a forgotten man, Maguire could be set to leave for more first-team action on loan and the club could cash-in on McTominay in order to spend big in the summer.
Solskjaer could use his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation if he is appointed Everton boss.

A defensive spine of Jones, Maguire and McTominay could be supported by one of Everton's best players in Amadou Onana and Seamus Coleman's experience could prove vital in the battle to stay up.
Further forward, Solskjaer likes to have speed on either flank, shown by his choice of Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho at Old Trafford.
Demarai Gray and Anthony Gordon would be able to offer similar directness on the counter-attack.
Alex Iwobi was converted into a more central player by Lampard and with the lack of obvious No10 he seems the most likely option.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will lead the line despite Everton wanting to add another striker to the squad with reported interest in Marko Arnautovic.
Alternatively, Solskjaer could use wing-backs to make the team more defensively solid, a formation he used on a number of occasions at United.
Conor Coady is a leader and experienced at the heart of three centre-backs and could come play in that system.
Young right-back Nathan Patterson could feature providing more energy than Coleman.
Gordon is attracting interest from Newcastle and Chelsea amid rumours he could be sold after not reporting for training.
