Former Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has been tipped as Everton's new manager.

According to widespread reports, the Toffees are considering the Argentine tactician as a possible replacement for Frank Lampard who was sacked on Monday, January 23 following a string of poor results.

Bielsa, now 67, left his last managerial job in February last year, after a streak of four consecutive defeats at Leeds United.

According to Sky Sports report, Everton have held talks with the veteran manager, and he has expressed his willingness to take up the vacant role at Goodison Park.

El Loco Bielsa is a well-drilled football coach with over three decades of coaching experience.

He has managed European clubs like Espanyol, Athletic Bilbao, Lazio, Marseille and Lille.
