Allan will reportedly leave Napoli after the current campaign and has been linked with a move to reunite with Carlo Ancelotti at Everton.
Il Mattino claims the former Partenopei coach, who left the San Paolo in December, is prepared to launch an offer this summer and bring Allan to the Premier League.
But the report points out that Everton will be met by a stubborn Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis, who is not willing to let the Brazilian leave on a discounted price.
The Azzurri have slapped a price tag of €70m on the midfielder, who has seemed set to leave since the mutiny before Ancelotti’s farewell and due to a tense relationship with new coach Gennaro Gattuso.
The 29-year-old has played 18 games across Serie A and the Coppa Italia this term and appeared six times in the Champions League before the forced break.
