​Wenger says Ancelotti 'tremendous catch' for Everton

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has spoken about Carlo Ancelotti's proposed move to Everton.

While the Italian has not been formally announced by the Merseyside club, it is believed that a deal is very close.

And Wenger believes that it is an appealing move for the Toffees, who would normally struggle to attract a manager with such a CV.

Ancelotti has won the Champions League on multiple occasions, while he has managed top clubs in nearly every major European league.

"Well it was quite a surprise that he had to leave Napoli," Wenger told Sky Sports on Ancelotti.

"Everton are looking for a manager as well.

"So overall he will be a tremendous catch for Everton."
