Everton are currently in talks with Christophe Galtier to become their next manager, according to BeFoot.
The Toffees found themselves without a coach after Carlo Ancelotti left them in order to take charge of Real Madrid for a second stint.
Galtier will be in high demand after sensationalizing Lille to the Ligue 1 title last season and winning the Ligue 1 Manager of the Season award.
The report added that Galtier has struck a deal to take over French club Nice, although this has not deterred Everton.
You could say Everton will be a better next career step for Galtier rather than Nice.
The latter placed ninth in the French top flight last season and even if the 54-year-old agrees to join them, he will have to embark on a long-term project to evolve the outfit into a team worthy of winning trophies. .
As well as giving Galtier a worthy squad for European football, the Toffees would also be able to offer him a higher salary and a bigger budget to work in the transfer market.
Due to his impressive reputation and ability to succeed through thick and thin, Galtier could be a good option for Everton as the next manager.
As expected, Lille is gradually losing its best players from last season.
One of the players the French champions have since lost is goalkeeper Mike Maignan against AC Milan. The 25-year-old is expected to be the Rossoneri’s first choice goalkeeper next season. Gianluigi Donnarumma is expected to leave San Siro.
