Everton have acted quickly to replace recently sacked Rafael Benitez if reports are to be believed, with former boss and current Belgium manager Roberto Martinez being offered the job – and the move could see his assistant Thierry Henry join him at Goodison Park.

Benitez was relieved of his duties after picking up just six points from 13 games in the dugout on the blue half of Merseyside.

Having moved to fifth in the Premier League table at the start of October, the Spaniard won just once in the rest of his tenure in 2-1 home win against Arsenal.

But losses to Brentford, Watford and Norwich amongst others saw his tenure cut short after just 200 days, with the Toffees dropping to 16th in the table as a result.

Rumours linking managers such as Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard, Graham Potter and Nuno Espírito Santo have cropped up over the last couple of days as the Toffees frantically search for a permanent man to take over the reigns.

But according to The Athletic, they have gone back for former manager Roberto Martinez, who could bring current assistant Thierry Henry with him from the Belgium national team.
