Everton to confirm Carlo Ancelotti as coach before the weekend


Carlo Ancelotti will be confirmed as Everton's new permanent manager before the weekend, Sky Sports News understands.

Sky Sports News has learned that Ancelotti, sacked by Napoli last week, will be in the stands at Goodison Park for the Premier League fixture against Arsenal on Saturday, and will be officially presented to the media on Monday.

Duncan Ferguson, who has achieved victory over Chelsea and a draw at Manchester United so far, will continue his role as interim boss for the Arsenal game.

Ancelotti has been offered a four-and-a-half-year contract and is set to take charge of his first game against Burnley on Boxing Day, according to Sky in Italy.

The 60-year-old is set to be assisted by his son Davide Ancelotti and Ferguson, having been given assurances that there will be money to spend in the January transfer window.

Sky in Italy are reporting that Ancelotti will travel to Naples to end his contract with Napoli and that is expected to be resolved by Wednesday.

Sky Sports News broke the story on Monday that Ancelotti reached an agreement in principle to become Marco Silva's successor following talks on Merseyside earlier in the day.

The club insisted on Monday that they had not yet made a contract offer to any candidate involved in the "process" but had held meetings with a number of them.

Ancelotti swiftly emerged as the primary target for Everton's majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright after he was sacked as Napoli manager last week.
