as Roy Hodgson’s replacement.

Hodgson left Selhurst Park after being in charge for four years and the Eagles ended the Premier League season sitting 13th on the table.

Palace are considered to have a number of other options instead of Nuno, who is in talks with Everton after Carlo Ancelotti rejoined

Among the alternatives are Frank Lampard, Patrick Vieira, Swansea manager Steve Cooper, and Barnsley's Valerian Ismael.

The 47-year-old former Wolves manager, who has also been targeted by Tottenham, contributed to the Championship title during his first season at the club, guiding them back to the Premier League after six years.

When he was in charge, Wolves also got Europa League qualification for two seasons in a row before things took a turn in the 2020-21 season, as they ended the season sitting 13th.

However, by the end of this season, the ex-Valencia coach was replaced by Bruno Lage.

The former Benfica manager led his side to the Portuguese top-flight success during his first season in charge but was sacked last summer.
