Portuguese newspaper O Jogo has plenty of interesting news for Premier League clubs on Wednesday.

First they reported Paulo Fonseca has rejected West Ham to stay at Shakhtar Donetsk, and now also claim Marco Silva is close to taking charge of Everton.

They write that the manager has been in negotiations with the Toffees, and the parties could be reaching an agreement very soon.

With the article coming out in the morning, before Sam Allardyce’s departure was announced, O Jogo said that Everton were in talks to sack the manager with a friendly termination of his contract.

The newspaper is pretty confident about Silva’s arrival, saying ‘once it’s done’ the manager will be taking the job he’d already been approached for during his time at Watford earlier this season.

The Hornets would be even asking for compensation for this illegal approach, which according to O Jogo, won’t result in anything.

The outlet also claims that besides the change in management, Everton plan to improve the ‘football structure’ at the club by bringing Marcel Brands from PSV as a director.
