To kick off this quiz on Seamus Coleman, what squad number does the right-back currently wear for the Toffees?

The Toffees are on the hunt for a new boss after Carlo Ancelotti walked out and rejoined Real Madrid.

One man who has been linked and is supposedly in talks is former Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

McGarry provided an update on that one Everton look to act swiftly.

He said: “It’s our understanding that Nuno Espirito Santo having left Wolves is one of the coaches they’re considering, given the job he did at Molineux, but he’s also under consideration – though not first choice – for the Spurs job.”

Castles then added his thoughts on the matter: “Nuno Espirito Santo has been offered to Everton, it’s not a surprise. The job has opened up unexpectedly. It’s behind Tottenham [as] the most attractive of the jobs available in the Premier League this summer.”

Do you want Nuno as the next Everton manager?

TIF Thoughts on Nuno…

In his time at Wolves, Nuno secured promotion from the Championship and two seventh-placed finishes in the Premier League.

However, the 2020/21 campaign was disappointing, and he left at the end of the season, but he proved in those other three campaigns that he can do a good job.

Everton finished tenth in the Premier League but weren’t that far off the top six, so could Nuno be the man to drag the Toffees up the table?

Well, he got close to the top six with Wolves, and the combination of Nuno and an ambitious owner like Farhad Moshiri could be just what Everton need.
