Everton will have to cough up a £2million compensation fee to Crystal Palace if they want to hire Sam Allardyce as their new manager.
The figure was agreed by Allardyce and Palace representatives as part of his severance package when he quit the Eagles last summer after saving them from relegation.
Allardyce is among the front-runners to take over at Goodison Park after Ronald Koeman’s diabolical run came to an end after the 5-2 hone defeat by Arsenal.
Another name mooted to take the role is Burnley boss Sean Dyche.
Big Sam is scheduled to have talks with Everton chiefs in London today, where he will demand to bring his own backroom staff.
Sacked Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare and goalkeeping coach Martyn Margetson are on the list to join his coaching team.
He will also ask for a huge bonus to keep the Toffees in the Premier League, according to The Sun.
