Everton have held talks with former boss Sam Allardyce, who is a back-up option to take over
It remains to be seen whether the Merseyside club try to persuade Bielsa or move onto other targets.
Key figures within the Everton hierarchy remain admirers of their previous manager Sam Allardyce, who has held initial talks with the club over replacing Lampard.
