WATCH: Sam Allardyce reveals Everton tried to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Sam Allardyce’s name has been linked with Everton, ever since he departed the club at the end of the season.

There will be a part of Allardyce that will be ever so slightly enjoying the struggles of the Toffees at this moment in time, having been let go by the club and replaced by Marco Silva due to concerns over their style of play.

However, as they are now finding out, pretty football doesn’t always guarantee results, something which Allardyce has been solid at achieving throughout his career. However, during an appearance on talkSPORT this morning, the 64-year-old opened the door to a different reality for him at Everton, had they been successful in the transfer market.

Allardyce claims the club were in for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this time last year, who he says was desperate for a move to the Premier League. Ultimately, they were priced out of the move by Arsenal, who used the funds from the Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud deals to bring him to the Emirates.

Instead, Allardyce was left to rotate between the likes of Oumar Niasse and Dominic Calvert-Lewin for the remainder of the season before parting ways with Everton. Watch below as the former England manager details his former employers interest in Arsenal’s leading marksman this season.
