And they could turn to one of Anfield’s favourite sons in their bid to reach Europe.
Ancelotti stunned Everton when he returned to LaLiga giants Real Madrid this week as Zinedine Zidane’s replacement.
The Toffees had been planning for new signings under the Italian tactician.
And they are now eager to quickly appoint a new gaffer so they don’t lose ground in the transfer market.

It’s believed Gerrard has caught Everton’s eye after his incredible season with Rangers.
The Glasgow outfit stormed to the Scottish title with an unbeaten campaign.
And despite being tipped to eventually replace Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, Gerrard could instead find himself in the blue half of Merseyside.
Likewise, Benitez has also made Everton’s list despite being regarded as a Liverpool legend for winning the Champions League in 2005.

The Spaniard is out of work after leaving Chinese side Dalian Pro in January.
But his brilliant work with Newcastle between 2016 and 2019 has not been forgotten by other Premier League sides.
Everton will now look to get a new manager in as soon as possible.
But there are a host of other names on their shortlist, including former boss and West Ham gaffer David Moyes.
Another ex-manager Roberto Martinez is also of interest, with former Wolves tactician Nuno Espirito Santo and Ajax chief Erik ten Hag linked too.
