- Former Liverpool coach Rafael Benitez is now on the verge of making a return to the Premier League
- Premier League giants Everton are looking forward to make him a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti who is now at Real Madrid
- Despite starting the season well last season, Everton failed to finish among the top four on the final League table
Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi is now on the verge of getting a new manager at Everton as the club's chiefs are reportedly ready to name former Liverpool gaffer Rafael Benitez as new boss.
The 61-year-old Spaniard recently left the Chinese Super League and has also been linked with other top teams in Europe.
Since the departure of Carlo Ancelotti at Everton moving to Spanish giants Real Madrid, Everton have been looking for another manager before the start of the coming Premier League season.
Rafa Benitez is not new in the Premier League having managed Liverpool and steered them to glory winning the Champions League and FA Cup titles.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Dominic Calvert-Lewin emerged as a top transfer target for new Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti this summer.
The Italian-born tactician was named Los Blancos' next handler after the exit of Zinedine Zidane at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
Ancelotti didn't think twice to quit his role as the Toffees head coach for a return to the Santiago Bernabeu despite his £1million-a-month deal at the Premier League club.
He is now planning to raid the Goodison Park for his former striker Calvert-Lewin in a deal that could be valued at about £50 million.
The former Chelsea boss was quoted to have described the English man as a complete striker during his reign at the EPL club.
