Ancelotti in Line for Everton, Arsenal Job
By Ufuoma Egbamuno
It is not up to twenty four hours after his sack but former Napoli manager, Carlo Ancelotti, could be on his way to the Premier League to manage Everton.
Sky Italia reports that the Merseyside club are considering appointing the former Chelsea coach as the replacement for Marco Silva who was sacked last week.
Also, several reports in the UK suggests Arsenal could be another destination for Ancelotti as the Gunners seek for Unai Emery's replacement.
Napoli announced the departure of Ancelotti on Tuesday right after their emphatic 4:0 bashing of Genk in the UEFA Champions League. Before Tuesday’s win, the Naples side had gone nine matches in all competitions without a win.
Former AC Milan manager, Gennerro Gattusso is expected to take over the Napoli job for the next six months according to reports in Italy.
There were also rumours of a rift between club president, Aurelio De Laurentiis and Ancelotti.

The friendship and mutual respect between the club, President Aurelio De Laurentiis and Carlo Ancelotti remain intact.
But this was denied by the Naples side on its official Twitter handle.
"The rapport of friendship, admiration and reciprocal respect between the club, its president (Aurelio De Laurentiis) and Carlo Ancelotti remain intact,” the club said.
Ancelotti has won league titles in Italy, England, Germany and France as well as three UEFA Champions League titles with AC Milan and Real Madrid.
