The Toffees are currently under pressure in the Premier League. Sitting 17th in the table, manager Marco Silva is facing an increasingly uncertain future in the Goodison Park hotseat.

Everton play Liverpool in what could be a turning point in their season. However, regardless of how that goes, Tony Cascarino has insisted that the Toffees still need to be eyeing up Wilder.

“For Everton, Chris Wilder has to be their first choice,” he told The Times. 

“His track record at Sheffield United shows he could transform the club. Evertonians would love him and his style of play.”

Wilder has led United to two promotions in three seasons and has drawn plaudits for his style of play. A move to Everton would be a chance for him to leave his inprint on yet another club. However, whether he would move at the moment is a big question.

Cascarino, though, is not the first ex-player to call for big clubs to be making their move for the Blades boss.

Would Chris Wilder be tempted by a move to Everton?

The quality of the squad on paper, plus the chance to earn a bit more money and spend more in the transfer market might well be something that appeals.

However, thats’ all that the Merseysiders have really got going for them at the moment. The players simply aren’t gelling and big money signings like Moise Kean, are struggling to perform.

It would take some massive promises from the Everton board and a big, hefty contract to tempt Wilder away at the moment.

The Blades boss has a good thing going at Bramall Lane at the moment. It’s exciting times for the club, with new owner Prince Abdullah seemingly promising to back his manager and improve the entire club.

While Everton are a massive club in their own right, it’s hard to see Chris Wilder jumping ship just yet.
