Last weekend, Gazzetta Dello Sport reported Carlo Ancelotti’s dream signing for Everton would be Allan, but that was considered impossible.
Two days ago, we covered claims from Corriere dello Sport explaining the Toffees’ ‘fatal attraction’ with the Napoli midfielder could lead to negotiation.
The former Chelsea manager knows the Brazilian from his time at the Serie A side.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Naples club would be willing to allow the 29-year-old to leave following the arrival of Diego Demme and Stanislav Lobotka at San Paolo Stadium this month.
Paris Saint-Germain and the Merseyside club get a mention and it’s claimed Ancelotti has personally called the player in the last few hours. Allan is tempted to play in the Premier League and also by the possibility of playing under his former manager.
Unfortunately for Allan and Ancelotti, Everton have not yet taken concrete steps to sign Allan and TMW adds they would ‘hardly do so’ in January.
PSG still remain interested in Allan and his agent has maintained constant contacts with the Ligue 1 winners. The Napoli man’s representative is pushing for a solution with Les Parisiens.
