Goodison Park side preparing for life after Scottish boss.
Everton are drawing up contingency plans in case David Moyes decides to leave the club this summer according to Goal.com.
The Scottish boss is out of contract at the end of the season and is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal.
There are concerns at Goodison Park that Moyes may feel he has taken the club as far as he can and that he may decide to leave in search of a fresh challenge.
Everton are keen not to be caught out should Moyes decide to leave and are drawing up a short list of potential replacements for the manager.
Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has reportedly identified Porto manager Vitor Pereira as his number one target to replace Moyes.
The Portuguese boss guided Porto to the title in his first season at the club and the Portuguese giants are currently unbeaten domestically this season.
They currently trail Benfica by four points but are set for a close end of season run in to determine the winners of the Portuguese title.
Should Pereira not become available, the Everton hierarchy are reportedly taking an interest in Wigan’s Spanish manager Roberto Martinez.
Martinez is admired for the way he has managed Wigan with a limited financial budget.
