Chelsea Legend, Frank Lampard has been offered the vacant Everton managerial position
Lampard, 43, has been out of work for a year after being sacked as Chelsea manager last January, leaving the Blues after 18 months in charge.
Portuguese Vitor Pereira and caretaker Duncan Ferguson also had their second interviews for the job on Friday, but the club decided to move for Lampard.
It will be recalled that Rafael Benitez was sacked after winning just one of his last 13 games and merely spend seven months at the club.
The former Liverpool manager lasted less than seven months and a side lacking in confidence lies 16th in the Premier League, just six points above the relegation zone.
Pereira initially looked set to be offered the job after holding "very positive" talks and said club officials were "enthusiastic of what I proposed to them.
Lampard is expected to take the offer anytime soon.
