EVERTON want Nuno Espirito Santo to replace Carlo Ancelotti.
And the Toffees' starting XI could look much different under the former Wolves boss next season – especially if he signs the 'Portuguese Kylian Mbappe'.

The Merseysiders are in a battle with Crystal Palace for the Portuguese boss' signature.
Goodison supremo Farhad Moshiri is seeking his SIXTH manager in five years after Ancelotti rejoined Real Madrid on Tuesday.
Moshiri has put Nuno top of a wishlist that includes Eddie Howe and Rafa Benitez.
Palace have been in talks with Nuno for the past few days and he is their top choice to replace retiring Roy Hodgson.
But the Toffees’ bigger budget and ambitions might sway Nuno.
And one man they could land if the 47-year-old takes the job is the 'Portuguese Mbappe' Rafael Leao.
The 21-year-old AC Milan forward's future is hanging in the balance with the Toffees and Wolves interested, according to SportWitness.
Everton are said to have made inquiries in January with Milan slapping a £43million price tag on his head.

Leao has been described as the 'Portuguese Kylian Mbappe' by those who worked with him at Sporting Lisbon.
He scored six times and provided five assists in 26 Serie A matches this season.
As well as Leao, Nuno's arrival could also see some Wolves players drafted in.
He would likely play his five at the back system with Willy Boly and Nelson Semedo prime targets to slot in.
Ruben Neves also shone under his fellow Portuguese at Molineux and would make a fine midfield partner for Allan.
