Many Everton fans have been buzzing as Calcio Napoli 24 reported that the Merseyside club have put in an official bid for Allan.
As per the outlet, the Toffees have made Gennaro Gattuso’s team an offer of €25m plus €5m in bonuses, a deal totalling €30m, which is the equivalent of around £27m.
However, the Naples side would like an extra €5m up front, with the deal then adding up to €35m, which equates to roughly £31.5m.
Indeed, Allan would arguably be an upgrade on Carlo Ancelotti’s current squad at Goodison Park, as the central midfield player scored more goals and also averaged more tackles and key passes than Fabian Delph, Tom Davies and Andre Gomes in their respective domestic leagues in the 2019/20 season, according to WhoScored.
Would Allan start for Everton under Carlo Ancelotti?
At 29 years of age, the Brazilian international would add considerable experience in the middle of the park, with 391 club appearances under his belt (via Transfermarkt).
These Everton supporters were buzzing upon reading the news on Twitter, with one Toffees fan branding him as ‘class’:

Just pay it. He drastically improves our midfield and makes us more attractive for other potential signings
