Marcelo Bielsa is Everton’s top choice to save them from relegation after Frank Lampard was finally sacked as manager.

Lampard was relieved of his duties at 3pm on Monday after 357 days in charge. He leaves Everton 19th in the Premier League having made their worst ever start to a season, with 15 points from 20 league games.

Bielsa, who left Leeds last season having worked wonders to re-establish them as a Premier League club, has held talks with Everton’s owner Farhad Moshiri and wants to know about their transfer strategy a week before the window closes.

Everton officials know what is riding on this appointment and they believe that appointing a manager with Bielsa’s reputation — and his high-energy, attacking style — could galvanise them with half the season still to play.

It was a challenging day for Everton and the phone call that Moshiri made to Lampard was difficult for both men.

The 44-year-old was devastated, having put his heart and soul into the job, but understood the reasons after losing eight of his last nine matches in charge.
