Report: Everton have looked into prospect of Conte as new manager

Everton have turned their attention to Antonio Conte as they look for Carlo Ancelotti’s successor.

The Telegraph report the Italian is among the candidates Everton have enquired about.

Conte was in talks over joining Tottenham last week but the negotiations fell through.

Everton apparently also remain interested in Nuno Espirito Santo, whose talks with Crystal Palace fell through.

Brighton manager Graham Potter is also another name in the frame according to the report.

Conte left Inter recently, despite having won Serie A – the fifth title of his managerial career so far.

That title-winning pedigree would make him a real coup for Everton if they could convince him to come.

Conte would replace Ancelotti’s star quality and he is one of the best managers in the world right now.

He gets his teams very fit, is demanding of his players and crucially, gets results.

Potter is a different type of manager; more of a coach, playing more attractive football but his Brighton side lacked ruthlessness last season.
