Everton has made a second “massive” move for Southampton manager Ronald Koeman, according to Dutch journalist Marcel van der Kraan.
Koeman was installed as the favourite to succeed the sacked Roberto Martinez on Merseyside earlier on Thursday and the De Telegraaf writer believes the Saints boss faces a huge decision in the next 24 hours.
Van der Kraan told Sky Sports News HQ: “Everton have come out all guns blazing to try and get the man they wanted in the first place.
“When Ronald made it clear that Southampton was his priority and that his heart was there, he wasn’t going to go. But, as happens more in football, sometimes when you say no the more they want you, and they have now come back in for him, and it looks very, very positive.”
