The Portuguese manager was reportedly approached to become the new Everton manager, which has subsequently been rejected by Watford.

The managerial hotseat is up for grabs at Goodison Park, after Ronald Koeman was sacked by the Toffees last month.

He nearly saved Hull from relegation from the Premier League and since taking charge at Watford he has guided them to their best ever top-flight start since the Graham Taylor era.

Over the weekend Silva, 40, emerged as the new frontrunner for the Toffees post, and then tonight (Monday) the Merseyside outfit made a decision to try their luck by knocking on Watford's door.

Israel will continue 'acting in Syria', Netanyahu tells US & Russia
The presence of Iran in Syria is legitimate, Lavrov was quoted as saying by another agency, Interfax . Curtiss Scaparrotti, head of the US army's European Command, and discuss Iranian moves in Syria.

Everton themselves feel they can clinch that with an offer that would double his wages and promise ample scope to do business in the January window - especially as the club needs a striker - although no concrete discussions have yet taken place, since Watford are now completely unwilling to let their manager go. No Hornets boss has managed more than 50 games since the days of Gianfranco Zola, and to lose Silva after just 11 league games would be a huge blow for the club.

Dyche, thought to be keen on talking to Everton, would cost £2.5 million in compensation.

Since parting ways with Dutchman Ronald Koeman towards the end of last month, the Toffees - now in the hands of David Unsworth on an interim basis - have been linked with a number of possible replacements, such as Sam Allardyce, Sean Dyche and Diego Simeone.
