Everton boss David Moyes is being considered at Arsenal. The Mail on Sunday says Wenger's contract runs out in 2014 and he has so far refused to discuss a new one. If he leaves at the end of the season, he may look to return to France.

Aware of Wenger's perilous position, Moyes has told Everton he is unlikely to discuss his own future until the summer when his current deal runs out.

Despite his close relationship with owner Bill Kenwright, there is irritation inside Everton at Moyes's tactics, which they regard as a form of blackmail to push for new signings.
