Everton manager Ronald Koeman could be sacked by the end of the month, according to The Mirror.

The report claims that Koeman has been given until the end of October to show signs of improvement, or he will be given the boot.

Koeman has come under pressure this season after winning only two of his first seven Premier League matches.

Everton currently sit in 16th place, with two wins, one draw and four defeats, which is seen as unacceptable by the fans and board.

The report claims that the board are growing concerned with Koeman’s performance and manager and will pull the plug if results continue to go downhill.

Koeman was given a massive transfer budget during the summer, spending almost £150m and breaking the club’s transfer record multiple times.

Everton face Brighton, Lyon, Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal before the end of the month, with Koeman needing some big results.
