Everton are reportedly interested in signing their namesake, Gremio and Brazil striker Everton Soares.

Here, the PA news agency unearths five more highly appropriate match-ups from football’s recent history.

Wolfgang Wolf (Wolfsburg)

Surely the game’s greatest destiny was realised in 1998 when former Kaiserslautern defender Wolfgang Wolf was appointed manager of Wolfsburg. Inevitably it proved a match made in heaven, as Wolf established the club as a Bundesliga force during his five-year tenure before being axed in 2003.

Unai Bilbao (Bilbao Athletic)

Unai who? Bilbao must have thought he was on to something when he side for the eponymous Spanish side in 2014. Unfortunately, in four years with the club he never made it beyond their B team, before he was finally put out of his misery and allowed to leave for Mexican club Atletico San Luis in 2018.
