Napoli and Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton are both reportedly going for another transfer target, this time Sporting CP midfielder Wendel.
According to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, the two clubs are tracking the 22-year-old Brazilian talent.
He is seen as an alternative to Allan, who is expected to leave Napoli this summer, potentially for PSG or Everton.
It’s suggested the asking price is in the region of €20m, as Sporting bought him from Fluminense for €7.5m in January 2018.
Wendel’s contract in Lisbon runs until June 2023 and so far this season, he has contributed two goals and two assists in 30 competitive appearances.
