Everton interview Fabio Cannavaro for manager job as they add Italy legend to shortlist with Wayne Rooney

ITALY legend Fabio Cannavaro has been interviewed for the vacant Everton managerial role.

SunSport understands the Ballon d'Or-winning defender is the latest candidate to be considered by the Toffees hierarchy.

Cannavaro is looking to return to management after leaving Guangzhou Evergrande in September, ending the four-year reign.

But the former centre-back is joined by Everton hero Wayne Rooney and ex-Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

Though Jose Mourinho has ruled himself out of coming back to England, committing his future to Roma.

Derby gaffer Rooney, who made his name as a young player at Goodison Park, looks set to be interviewed by the pair owner Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright.

And Lampard — out of work since being sacked by the Blues just a year ago — is also in contention.

Duncan Ferguson has been appointed as caretaker manager for a second time and will be in charge against  Aston Villa.

Along with Rooney, Mourinho, Lampard and Ferguson, Brighton’s Graham Potter makes up Everton’s wishlist.

The Belgian FA are refusing to consider an approach for Roberto Martinez, who was Goodison chief from 2013 to 2016.

The return of Rooney would be hugely popular for a disillusioned fanbase who were stunned when former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez got the job in June.

But the Spaniard was sacked after a 2-1 loss at Norwich left Everton 16th in the league.

Another potential target could be former West Ham boss Slaven Bilic, who had a short spell at Everton as a player in the late 90s.
