Everton are set to make a shock move for German national team coach Joachim Loew.
The Daily Mirror writes that the 56-year-old could be persuaded to head to Goodison Park, if funds are made available to spend on reinforcements in the summer. The World Cup-winning coach has just signed a new long-term agreement with the Deutsche Fussball-Bund, but it is believed to contain a clause that allows him to speak to any interested club.
Sources close to Low however, suggest that he would only be interested in returning to a club side who could offer Champions League football. If not, his new employer would at least have to give him the financial clout to build a squad capable of reaching Europe’s elite competition as quickly as possible.
That would not scare new owner Farhad Moshiri – who is reportedly set to bankroll Everton to the tune of £200 million. Current boss Roberto Martinez is believed to be on borrowed time after a vote of “no confidence” at a recent board meeting.
