Everton have held further talks with Napoli over a deal for central midfielder Allan, according to a report.
Former Napoli chief Carlo Ancelotti is said to have targeted Allan, who he worked with in Naples, as the ideal player to strengthen the Toffees' midfield.
The 29-year-old is part of the Partenopei's pre-season training squad, but the Daily Mail claims that Everton are still working to get a transfer over the line.
However, while the Merseyside outfit are willing to offer £25m for the Brazil international, Napoli are believed to be holding out for closer to £30m.
Allan has made 212 appearances for the Italian outfit in five seasons with the club since joining from Udinese in 2015.
