Friday’s national newspapers are reporting that Ralf Rangnick has emerged as a possible candidate for the vacant managerial role at Everton.

The Daily Mail, Daily Mirror and Daily Star all suggest that the former Schalke and Stuttgart boss is on the Club’s shortlist to succeed David Moyes.

The Times and Daily Express also mention that the 54-year-old German is now in contention to land the role, although they say that Everton representatives will meet with Roberto Martinez for a second time to discuss the position.

In the Liverpool Echo, Leighton Baines – currently away with England in South America preparing for Sunday’s friendly against Brazil - is quoted as saying that Spaniard Martinez is a ‘terrific manager’, while new Blues skipper Phil Jagielka reveals that he will be ‘delighted’ no matter who takes up job.

Also in the Echo, Everton correspondent Greg O’Keeffe has highlighted six areas which the new Blues boss will need to focus his attention on. These include keeping hold of Baines, finding more bargain signings, adding pace to the team’s midfield and recruiting a prolific goalscorer.

Meanwhile, Craig Bellamy, whose book is being serialised in the Daily Mirror, reveals that he almost joined Everton in 2005 after meeting with former boss Moyes.
