The 24-year-old was injured in a duel with Kai Havertz and will be out for months.

The Toffees also lost centre-back Yerry Mina to an ankle injury in the 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park.

That has left boss Frank Lampard under cover as he tries to avoid a repeat of last season’s relegation battle.

Lamps has identified England’s World Cup hopeful Coady as the right man for the job.

The 29-year-old was an unused substitute when Wanderers started the season with a 2-1 defeat at Leeds.

Wolves boss Bruno Lage said beforehand he had always appreciated Coady’s outstanding seven years of service at Molineux but admitted he doesn’t know if he will leave.

And 24 hours after Godfrey’s injury, Football every day reported that Everton are close to completing their nosedive.

The Breaking Football News Service says he is expected to join an initial loan deal with an option to buy.

Wolves skipper Coady has made 152 Premier League appearances.

He won the first of his ten caps in 2020 and played in all 38 games of the Wolves league campaign last season.
