Crystal Palace are hoping Nuno Espirito Santo will agree to their new manager on Wednesday amid concerns that Everton could make a last-minute attempt to hijack their transfer.
The London club are prepared to move on to other targets such as Swansea boss Steve Cooper and Burnley’s Sean Dyche if there is a lengthy delay.
Nuno, who left Wolves at the end of the season, is reportedly hugely impressed with the project Palace set up during his talks with club officials to replace Roy Hodgson.

But Palace fear Everton will formalize their interest in the Portuguese as they seek a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti, who left for Real Madrid last week.
Everton will likely be able to offer a more substantial budget and salary package.
Meanwhile, former Benfica boss Bruno Lage is expected to be named Nuno’s successor at Wolves.
Sources have told Sportsmail the deal is “90 percent done” and should be announced in the coming days.
