The Toffees are listing badly under current coach Roberto Martinez, who has wholly failed to build on the promise of last season despite recruiting and cultivating a talented squad of players.
As such, the Spaniard has found himself under pressure, with a series of fan protests on Saturday somewhat overshadowing the Merseysiders’ 2-1 victory over AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League.
With the Goodison Park heavyweights keen to start looking up the league—rather than down—under wealthy new part-owner Farhad Moshiri, it remains to be seen whether Martinez is still the man to take Everton to the next level.
However, we’re not convinced that Low—a man who has previously been linked with the Real Madrid hotseat—would join Everton at all, let alone leave his post as Germany coach to move to Merseyside, despite the Mirror‘s insistence that it could be on the cards.
Instead, there’s another name that we feel far more comfortable backing to replace Martinez.
Andre Villas-Boas endured a torrid time in the Premier League with both Chelsea and then—to a lesser extend—with Tottenham Hotspur.

However, he has rebuilt his reputation at Zenit St. Petersburg, where he won the Russian Premier League and the division’s Super Cup in 2015.
Could AVB, older and wiser than before, finally realise his undisputed potential where Martinez has failed?
