Some Everton fans have been left to buzz as Erik ten Hag has been named as a potential candidate to be the new manager at Goodison Park.
As per The Athletic, the current Ajax boss is on the shortlist of the Merseyside club to replace Carlo Ancelotti, who has left to go and manage Real Madrid.
Should Everton hire ten Hag?
However, the news outlet also claims that it is unlikely at this stage that ten Hag would take the job, especially given the fact that he signed a new one-year contract extension with the Dutch club until 2023 back in April (Sky Sports).
Nonetheless, he would seemingly be a popular choice among some members of the Toffees faithful, given that he has recently won the domestic double with Ajax (Transfermarkt).
The 51-year-old also famously guided an exciting Ajax team, containing names such as Matthijs De Ligt, Frenkie De Jong and Hakim Ziyech, to the UEFA Champions League semi-final stage in the 2018/19 season, only to be knocked out by a last-gasp Lucas Moura goal for Tottenham Hotspur.
