Everton target Marco Silva wanted by European giant

Everton’s pursuit of Marco Silva has suffered another twist with Benfica joining the chase.

Everton want to finally name Silva as their boss after first targeting him when Ronald Koeman was sacked in October.

The Goodison club subsequently turned to Sam Allardyce after Watford fought to keep Silva only to axe him in January.

Everton owner Farhad Moshiri is back in for Silva now with Allardyce facing the axe after failing to win over fans despite finishing eighth.

But MirrorSport understands Silva, 40, is also being offered the chance to coach Benfica in his native Portugal.

Current boss Rui Vitoria, who won the Portuguese title in both his first two seasons, is likely to go after Sergio Conceicao’s Porto finished top.

Silva moved to Watford at the start of the season having narrowly failed to save Hull from relegation last year.

He previously coached Estoril and Sporting CP before leaving in 2014 for Greek club Olympiacos, where he won the title.

Who should Everton have as manager next season?
