Duncan Ferguson has thrown his hat in the ring to be the new manager of Everton, according to the Daily Mail.

They report that the Scot feels ready to take on the top job after his time working under Carlo Ancelotti.

The likes of David Moyes and Nuno Espirito Santo are under consideration.

Talks with the Portuguese former manager of Wolves have started but it seems Everton are not rushing a process.

The report claims that an announcement is not imminent and Marcel Brands has reportedly been inundated with interest in the role.

Ferguson is among those keen but only has four matches of managerial experience to his name.

They came as interim manager between Marco Silva’s departure and Ancelotti’s arrival in December 2019.

They brought a win over Chelsea and three draws, but it would remain a gamble to give Ferguson the job.

Ferguson is a hugely popular figure among Everton fans, but is he the man to realise the club’s ambitions?

He would demand passion and commitment from the squad and would hope to apply some of what he’s learned from Ancelotti.
