To replace the fired Frank Lampard as Everton’s new manager, Sean Dyche is anticipated.
After speaking with Everton’s hierarchy, Dyche and former Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa emerged as the two leading candidates.
At first, it was thought that owner Farhad Moshiri preferred Bielsa, but the former Burnley manager is currently in the lead.

Before the weekend, the Toffees want to have their new manager in place.
The 67-year-old Bielsa raised concerns about taking over in the middle of the season and if the team would be able to handle his intense and physically taxing style.
Additionally, there were concerns about the pricey package his appointment would require.
Dyche is now the front-runner after negotiations failed to produce a solution; however, it is unclear how long the contract will last because the 51-year-old is unlikely to only seek a short-term arrangement.
The next day, on February 4, Everton will play host to Premier League champions Arsenal at Goodison Park.
Dyche also won over Everton, and it now appears clear that the Burnley manager will be assigned the job of saving their problematic season.
With only 15 points from 20 games, the Toffees were 19th in the Premier League when Lampard was fired.
During his ten years at Burnley, Dyche led the Clarets to two Championship promotions.
Burnley qualified for Europe for the first time in 51 years thanks in part to Dyche, who guided them to seventh place in the top tier in 2017–18.
Since investing in the team in February 2016, Moshiri will name his sixth manager.
