Everton to hold more talks with former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard

Everton are set to hold more talks with former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

The Daily Mail says the Chelsea legend has emerged as a lead candidate to replace Rafa Benitez.

Lampard has already held conversations with Goodison chiefs about the prospect of becoming the club's new head coach.

And those discussions will accelerate over the next 24 hours as Everton decide who they want to take over from sacked Benitez.

No appointment is imminent, but if talks go well with Lampard the former England star could find himself in pole position to land the job ahead of Vitor Pereira.

Sources claim the Toffees want someone in place before the weekend - particularly given the transfer window closes on Monday night.

Pereira had emerged as Everton's No 1 choice to take the head coach vacancy, the former Porto boss arriving in England earlier this week to effectively seal his appointment.

However, protests from supporters against his appointment has put Pereira's job hopes in jeopardy.
