Watford reject £8.5m bid from Everton for boss Marco Silva

Silva only joined Watford in the summer and is aware of how a prospective exit from the club will look, but the former Estoril and Hull City manager is said to be very tempted by the prospect of managing Everton and has designs on taking the reins at Goodison Park.

The Everton board are now believed to have made the former Hull manager their top target but the report says that any chance of sealing a deal is unlikely unless Silva kicks up a fuss at Vicarage Road or an offer is made that Watford can not turn down.

"It never materialised as I thought it would, unfortunately", Allardyce told broadcaster Talksport.

"For me, such a long time without a decision [meant] I had to make the decision myself".

The Daily Mail claims that Silva, 40, does want talks with the Toffees after officials of the Merseyside club made contact with the Hornets on Monday morning.

Residents in the capital, more than 300 kilometers (186 miles) away, felt tremors and said their buildings shook. While no casualties have been reported yet, seven people have been lightly wounded, with over 40 people rescued.

Silva is seen as "the best possible candidate for the job", and Everton "feel they can clinch" the manager with promises of an inflated wage and funds to spend.

'I think when you're sat in my position you want people to be decisive and feel like they want you.

"I didn't get that feeling overall".

However, the West Midlands side have rejected Everton's approach for the Portuguese head coach - formerly of Porto and Valencia.

"They have had enough time to sort it out and it is a surprise coming back into the Premier League (after the global break) and them still having no manager", Dunne told the radio station.
