Carlo Ancelotti has remained in hot pursuit of Napoli star Allan and a deal to bring him to Everton is reportedly doable for £22.5million.
Brazilian midfielder Allan had attracted plenty of interest from the Goodison Park outfit in the January transfer window but a move failed to come to fruition.
But according to Corriere Dello Sport, via Sport Witness, former Napoli manager Ancelotti is determined to reunite with Allan, and that a £22.5m deal is ‘feasible’.
Allan has fallen out of favour at the Stadio San Paolo under Gennaro Gattuso after he replaced Ancelotti at the helm in December last year.
And it is widely believed that Allan could be moved on as Serie A outfit Napoli consider an overhaul in the summer window.
It had previously been reported that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis wants £36m for Allan – a fee Everton were never likely to stump up amid the coronavirus pandemic.
But it now appears that the Toffees won’t have to pay that much, with it being reported that Everton can get their man for around £22.5m.
Ancelotti is desperate to bolster his squad following another disappointing season at Goodison Park.
Everton underwhelmed once again during the 2019-20 campaign, finishing a lowly 12th in the Premier League picking up just 13 victories along the way.
