Everton is after hiring Rafael Benitez after his departure from Dalian Yifang.

Rafael Benitez

, who has the experience of working with the Premier League clubs like

Chelsea

,

Liverpool

, and

Newcastle

, is reportedly close to joining

Everton

as the negotiations between the club and the manager have reached some positive points.

Everton has been looking to sign a new manager since

Carlo Ancelotti

decided to leave the club and join Real Madrid, and now they are interested in signing Benitez, who has been without a team since leaving Dalian Yifang in January.

The club had been considering other options before seriously considering Rafa Benitez; they talked with Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo and David Moyes, who now has signed a new contract with West Ham.

Ancelotti, who had reached the Premier League’s tenth place, left the club to return to Real Madrid earlier this month.

Rafael Benitez, who won the Champions League, FA Cup, and UEFA Super Cup with Liverpool, was considered as the Toffees’ rival during his time in the Premier League.

He also reached third place in the Premier League, when he joined Chelsea in 2012 as their interim boss, and then he spent some time at Real Madrid and Napoli before returning to Newcastle in 2016 and helped them to return to the Premier League as the champions of the Championship and kept them in the middle of the table before leaving them in 2019.
