The pressure is rising on Rafa Benitez, 61, after a dismal spell on Merseyside.

The Toffees have claimed just ONE victory in 12 matches and taken a meagre six points since October.

19 points from 18 games is the fewest Everton have had at this stage since the 2005-06 season.

And their latest defeat to Brighton at Goodison Park drew jeers and boos from home supporters.

With Everton now anchored in 15th and only eight clear of the relegation zone — a change could be on the horizon.

Denmark manager Kasper Hjulmand is the leading contender at 3/1 for the position should owner Farhad Moshiri freshen things up.

Hjulmand's Denmark impressed at Euro 2020, beating Wales and the Czech Republic before losing to England in extra-time at Wembley.

With nine wins from ten, 30 goals scored and three conceded, Denmark qualified for the 2022 World Cup in stunning fashion.

But their Qatar qualification could hinder an approach if Everton come knocking.

Hjulmand would become Everton's SEVENTH permanent manager since David Moyes left in May 2013.

Close behind at 7/2 is club legend Wayne Rooney.

The 36-year-old took his first step into senior management with Derby as player-manager before officially hanging up his boots in January.

But his journey hasn't been the smoothest with plenty of off-the-field turmoil.

The Rams were docked 12 points in September for going into administration and a further nine for breaches of accounting rules.

Rooney has also been operating under a transfer ban with strict limits on wages.

Despite that, Derby have ten points after 24 fixtures and would be sitting in 14th position without their sizeable points deductions.

Nuno Espirito Santo, who interviewed for the position after Carlo Ancelotti left, is third-favourite at 9/2 – ahead of Frank Lampard (6/1) and Duncan Ferguson (6/1).
