Emery was sacked by Arsenal after a long period of poor results.
After he lost his position at Arsenal, Everton came through as a potential new club for Emery.
He told spanish El Larguero that , “Everton was interested in me. I thought about it. I didn’t say no, we had a three-hour conversation. They already loved me when I went to PSG.”
Everton eventually turned to Carlo Ancelotti with the Italian tasked with reviving the club’s season as they were lying in the bottom half of the table.
