Everton fans have been pleading for the club to bring in Mikel Arteta as their new manager.
Current boss Marco Silva has come under severe pressure after his side’s 2-0 defeat to Norwich City on Saturday. The chorus of boos from the home fans told the story in terms of how the supporters feel towards the Portuguese manager at present.
Would you welcome the return of David Moyes?
As a result, there have been calls for Silva to lose his job and speculation of his successor has circulated, with many names mentioned. However, one name has stuck out more than others that satisfies a section of the Gwladys Street faithful.
Mikel Arteta has been made a potential candidate to takeover at Everton should Marco Silva be sacked. The board are said to have been impressed by his time as an assistant manager at Man City. He will be contacted over the upcoming days. (Source: Football Insider)#EFC pic.twitter.com/4KfeW2128a

Supporters were in favour of seeing 37 year-old Arteta take the reins at Goodison Park and made their feelings clear on social media.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Everton fans:
Makes sense, him and Cahill. Both know the Club inside out, Arteta has been schooled by the best coach in the game and must be ready to take on his first job as a No1.
