Everton are very close to meeting the €40m asking price for Napoli midfielder Allan, claim newspapers in Italy.
According to Il Mattino, the offer on the table has now reached €38m, including various bonuses.
That puts them within touching distance of the €40m price-tag that Napoli have placed on the Brazilian midfielder.
However, Partenopei President Aurelio De Laurentiis is pushing for more of that to be in a guaranteed cash sum, and less on performance-related bonuses.
