There have been many names mentioned to be the potential new Everton boss. These range from staff already at Everton, like assistant manager Steve Round, to Celtic manager Neil Lennon.
Of course a lot of Everton fans will tell you they want a world-beater like Jose Mourinho or Jurgen Klopp, however, the chances of them taking charge are very slim.
There are a lot of more realistic options, and most of these are actually talented and well suited to the Everton hot seat.
Here we look at three of the most suited managers for the role at Goodison Park.
1. Roberto Martinez
Yes, he may have just been relegated with Wigan after a disappointing campaign in the Premier League but he has won silverware and gets his team to play the right way.
His preferred formation usually consists of three at the back, which Everton tried with some success earlier in the season. One downside of that is that of course Everton's player of the season, Leighton Baines is a left back, a position not utilised in such formations.
Martinez has been previously criticised for his team's defensive play but is that more of Wigan's poor defence or his tactics? Martinez managed to get the best out of a tight budget at the DW Stadium and with a remarkably better defence at Everton he could get better results.
2. Michael Laudrup
Another Premier League manager, this time from Swansea City. Although largely inexperienced in the highest level of management, what he has achieved in his first year at Swansea has been incredible, winning the League Cup and pulling off some stellar transfer deals that have taken Swansea to the next level.
The fact that he can pull off these small fee transfers is perfect for Everton. One small downside could be that potentially this season was a fluke, however a fluke cannot be enough to see a cup win and a respectable league place.
3. Vitor Pereira
The Porto manager has had a good season at the Portuguese team. He tries to get his team to play passing football, something I feel Everton can adapt to. He used to be Andre Villas-Boas understudy and now has taken over himself.
This may sound risky and vague however, Porto have a good reputation of producing managers, with Mourinho and Villas-Boas the latest of a string of high profile managers. He could also bring over some talent from Porto but Everton's restricting budget may limit this.
