Everton’s approach for Marco Silva has seen the Watford boss’ odds on taking over at Goodison Park tumble.
Silva is now just 6/4 to become the next Everton manager. He had drifted to 10/1 last week, but the Merseysiders have now made their interest clear.
Watford have rejected Everton’s first approach for their highly-rated manager. Will the Toffees return with an improved offer? Silva is now second-favourite for the job.
Caretaker manager David Unsworth is still 5/4 favourite to take the role full-time, though his odds have fallen from 4/9.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “This once looked like a case of right man, wrong time – but increased interest in Silva over the weekend has forced our traders to spring into action and make the Watford boss a frontrunner for the position once again.”
