Ibrahimovic could be tempted to join Everton if they name Ancelotti as their new boss. He's believed to be 'open' to the idea of a sensational reunion with the veteran Italian on Merseyside according to the Telegraph.
The pair enjoyed success together while at Paris Saint-Germain, winning the Ligue 1 title in 2013.
Ibrahimovic, 38, is a free agent after leaving LA Galaxy at the end of November. A host of clubs have expressed an interest in signing him including Napoli and AC Milan. He has also been linked with a return to Manchester United.
Everton are now leading the chase to sign the ex-Juventus striker. The Premier League club are reportedly prepared to offer him £3.4 million per season to secure his services.
The Blues, who're currently 16th in the table, have the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Cenk Tosun and Moise Kean at their disposal.
Ancelotti, meanwhile, will be in the stands when Everton host Arsenal on Saturday with Duncan Ferguson continuing as caretaker boss.
