£6m Sam Allardyce headache as unhappy Wayne Rooney summons talks

Watford make official complaint about Everton to the Premier League ovre alleged tapping up of former boss Marco Silva

Everton remain interested in bringing Marco Silva to Goodison Park as Allardyce's replacement, but despite being now unemployed, appointing him as their manager still faces some challenges.

"F*** off Sam Allardyce", Everton fans sung during the 3-1 defeat to West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Allardyce's future at Everton has been the subject of conjecture for several weeks now with the club linked with a number of possible replacements for the former England boss.

Forward of crunch talks with proprietor Farhad Moshiri, Allardyce mentioned: 'I cannot fairly say I am assured after all of the rumours I am studying as a result of, usually, there isn't a smoke with out hearth, is there?

Sam Allardyce has reiterated that he has not fallen out with Wayne Rooney and insists that he will not have a say on whether the Everton ace stays or goes. Generally there's no smoke without fire.

According to reports in the Turkish media, Everton have already made an enquiry for Oguzhan Ozyakup, with the playmaker told he can leave Besiktas for €12m this summer.

Allardyce's rudimentary style of play has proved deeply unpopular despite lifting the Toffees from 13th in the Premier League when he was appointed in November to finish eighth.

It's said that Marco Silva, the former Watford manager who was initially favourite to replace Ronald Koeman when he was sacked in October, is the preferred candidate.

Watford cited Everton's interest in their decision to part with the Portuguese coach in January, claiming an "unwarranted approach by a Premier League rival".

However, it looks like there will be an update this week, with Allardyce adding on Sky Sports' Season Review - Managers Special: "It's moved on with his representative and the board from here, which I believe may be Wednesday".
