Everton have reportedly been in contact with Andrea Pirlo over their vacant managerial position.
The 42-year-old was recently sacked by Juventus after winning the Coppa Italia and only just sneaking into the top four on the last day of the season.
According to Calcio Mercato, Pirlo is being evaluated currently by the Toffees and a decision will be made in the coming days.
The report also suggests Everton are keen on another Italian, Claudio Ranieri.
Ranieri last managed in the Premier League in 2017 when he was sacked by Leicester City just nine months after winning the league.
However, Nuno Espirito Santo is in the running to take over from Carlo Ancelotti, who departed for Real Madrid this week.
Steven Gerrard and Rafa Benitez have also emerged as unlikely successors to Ancelotti in recent days.
