Everton might be looking to the Chinese Super League for its next manager.
Pereira, 51, has been in management since 2002, leading Porto, Olympiacos, Fenerbahce, and current club Shanghai SIPG amongst others.

He’s won titles in Greece, China, Saudi Arabia, and his native Portugal, but there are suitors beyond the Toffees’ reported interest.
The 51-year-old is currently one of the highest paid coaches in the world and was recently offered the job of managing the Chinese national team.
It is understood he is currently considering a new contract offer from Shanghai, which will guarantee he earns £30m a year.
Duncan Ferguson is the interim boss as Everton hosts Chelsea this weekend.
