Everton are reportedly edging closer to Napoli midfielder Allan by offering €38m, allowing him to reunite with Carlo Ancelotti.
The Brazilian had been given a price-tag of €50m last year, but that has since dropped to approximately €40-45m.
According to Il Mattino newspaper, the latest proposal coming in from the Toffees is worth €38m and the rest could be bridged with bonuses.
Allan would be given a significant pay rise to €4.7m per season in the Premier League.
He had his heart set on Paris Saint-Germain a couple of years ago, but President Aurelio De Laurentiis would not let him leave.
Following a downturn in form and the arrival of suitable replacements, Allan has dropped down the pecking order under new coach Gennaro Gattuso.
Ancelotti is currently the manager of Everton and had worked with Allan at Napoli from July 2018 to December 2019.
