Ancelotti set for Premier League return?

English Premier League

After parting ways with Napoli last week, former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly in talks to return to the Premier League.

The Italian was sacked last Wednesday, just hours after his side claimed a 4-0 win to qualify for the UEFA Champions League round of 16.

According to Sky Sports News, Ancelotti arrived in Merseyside on Monday afternoon for talks with Everton about replacing Marco Silva.

While interim coach Duncan Ferguson claimed a win over Chelsea and a draw at Manchester United in his opening two games, the report claims Ancelotti is the Toffees' number one choice.

Some of the other reported candidates for the club include former Arsenal coach Unai Emery, Manchester City assistant Mikel Arteta and former Toffees boss David Moyes.

Former Everton striker Kevin Campbell wants the Mersyside club to bring in a proven winner like Ancelotti, who has won the Premier League with Chelsea.

"It is about time Everton really put the shackles off and actually got a manager who is a perennial winner.

"The guys who they have had before have been winners but they haven't been of the calibre of an Ancelotti.

"If Ancelotti goes in at Goodison then I would love to see Duncan Ferguson on his staff. He has proven to be really good for the football club right now.

"Moving forward a man like Ancelotti knows exactly what to do. He knows how to set teams up and he knows how to win.

"Get him in and back this guy and then hopefully there could be another revolution - a blue revolution on Merseyside."
