Ronald Koeman’s agent is reportedly heading to Merseyside to hold talks with Everton over their vacant manager’s position.
The Toffees are looking for a new boss after sacking Roberto Martinez last month and they are understood to have made Southampton manager Koeman their number one target.
Koeman was reportedly set to sign a new two-year deal with the Saints last week, but sources in the manager’s native Holland say his agent is travelling to England to hear what Everton have to offer.
De Telegraf published a story on Thursday morning that Everton were persisting with their interest in Koeman, with Voetball International reporting a similar line.
Dutch journalist Tim de Wit then tweeted that Koeman’s agent Rob Jansen is en route to Merseyside.

Koeman said after the final game of the season that talks would take place over his future at St Mary’s, where he felt he had got the most out of the resources available to him.
“What we did this season, it’s maybe more than the maximum we can do as a team, and a big compliment to the players.”
