Everton hero Trevor Steven has urged patience over their search for a new manager.
Former Wolves boss Nuno is an early contender to replace Carlo Ancelotti.
Steven told Sky Sports: "Carlo Ancelotti for me was the perfect fit for Everton and the fact that he's now gone, you feel a bit derailed. It was very disappointing, but that's football. The club have to do something relatively quickly. Nuno Espirito Santo has done tremendously well during his time at Wolves, building an identity in his team, and brought great emotions back to the Wolves fans.
"He's had successes along the way having come up from the Championship and secured back-to-back seventh place finishes, but I just feel Everton don't want to rush in and make a hasty decision. I imagine it will take a couple of weeks to take in the possible candidates.
"Everton have had a fair range of managers over the last five or six years, and some big names in there as well, but I would suggest a little bit of patience and a little bit of calm, in order to find the right man."
