Napoli midfielder Allan has been linked with Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, but it’s reported he only wants to join Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.
The €40m asking price is proving a problem, but the latest reports suggest the Premier League club is getting much closer, reaching €38m including bonuses.
There has also been interest from Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund over the last 48 hours.
However, Sportitalia transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà maintains Allan has given his word to Ancelotti and will reject every other option.
The 29-year-old Brazilian has his heart set on reuniting with the coach who Napoli sacked in December.
This is despite the fact Everton are not in Europe for the 2020-21 season.
