Silva refuses to end Everton speculation as The Blues prepare improved offer

Marco Silva has refused to put an end to speculation linking him with a move to Everton.

The 40-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Goodison Park in recent weeks following the sacking of Ronald Koeman almost a month ago. Reports suggest that he is keen to make the move, although Watford are denying him permission to talk to the Premier League strugglers.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Sunday’s 2-0 victory over West Ham, the Portuguese boss continued to dodge the subject, neither admitting nor denying his interest in taking the vacancy:

“My future is tomorrow.

“We plan for the next game. We have already planned this [training] session. This is my future.

“I understand your question, but some things we can’t control.

“Everything can happen in football. I know what is in my hands. My plan is to plan the session tomorrow and see what happens in the future.”

Watford fans were heard chanting their support for their manager, who has only been in position since this summer. However, should he move to Goodison Park it would become his third Premier League job within 12 months after only arriving at Hull City last December.

Everton are believed to be readying an improved deal to ensure they get their man, including a £12m compensation package.
