Alex Iwobi is set to work under former Burnley manager Sean Dyche at Everton following the departure of Frank Lampard.
Lampard was sacked earlier in the week and Everton have spent the past few days speaking with a number of candidates, including former Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa. But according to the latest report the former Argentina national team handler, Bielsa, was interested in the Everton job and he flew from South America to England for a further round of talks over the position earlier this week, but sources have now confirmed that the Toffees have decided to go for Dyche.
Dyche has been out of work since leaving Burnley in April, with the Clarets ending his ten-year spell at the club in a desperate attempt to avoid relegation which ultimately came up short.
However, the former Burnley boss is expected to be appointed imminently and will then have a week to work with his new side ahead of his first match in charge which is a visit from Premier League leaders Arsenal on Saturday 4th February 2023.
