Everton will reportedly pursue Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Pedro Neto if his former boss Nuno Espirito Santo agrees terms with the club to replace Carlo Ancelotti.

Everton have reportedly targeted Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Pedro Neto, and will intensify their pursuit of the wide man if Nuno Espirito Santo takes the reins at Goodison Park.

The Toffees are searching for their next manager after Carlo Ancelotti departed for Real Madrid and Nuno has emerged as the front-running candidate to land the job on Merseyside.

It is reported that Everton are preparing to offer the Portuguese manager a three-year deal and should Nuno accept these terms, the club will pursue Neto in their hunt for a left-footed winger who can operate on either side.

The Liverpool Echo reports that the relationship Nuno has built with Pedro Neto at Wolves could aid a deal to bring the 21-year-old to Everton, using the influence of agent Jorge Mendes who represents both player and manager.

The youngster scored five times and assisted six goals in his 31 Premier League appearances during the just-completed season, and his performances have earned him admirers from the Everton camp.

In his two seasons at Molineux so far, Neto has played 79 times and registered 10 goals along with 11 assists for the club.
