Everton want Napoli to drop €40m asking price for Allan

Everton remain interested in taking Brazil midfielder Allan to the Premier League, but want Napoli to lower their asking price.

It is reported by Gazzetta dello Sport that Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis is asking for €40m from Everton for the midfielder.

Everton want to pay less and are counting on Carlo Ancelotti’s excellent relationship with De Laurentiis to get a reduction.

Last year, De Laurentiis priced Allan out of a move to PSG by demanding €80m for him.

With the 29-year-old losing some prominence under Rino Gattuso, his valuation has been halved.

De Laurentiis is expected to review Ancelotti’s request for a discount and a €30m offer could convince the president to sell.

For Napoli, it would not make sense to keep a player who has been unsettled for a year-and-a-half now.

The Partenopei also have a deep pool of midfielders, having bought Diego Demme and Stanislav Lobotka in January.
