Carlo Ancelotti could reunite with Mexico international Hirving Lozano at Everton, after the winger slipped to the Napoli bench.
It was Ancelotti who pushed to bring Lozano in to the Stadio San Paolo from PSV Eindhoven last summer for €38m.
However, after 22 competitive appearances, three goals and two assists, Lozano has fallen out of favour with new coach Gennaro Gattuso.
Although in theory he should be ideal for the switch to a 4-3-3 formation, Gattuso does not seem impressed with Lozano’s contribution.
The 24-year-old has not started a match since December 7.
