Everton boss Ancelotti chasing Napoli pair Allan and Koulibaly

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is chasing Napoli pair Allan and Kalidou Koulibaly.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Ancelotti picked up his mobile back in January and rang Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis, his former boss, directly.

The primary reason was to 'test the water' for Allan, whom the Everton manager still appreciates a lot, and while no deal was done, the parties left with a 'let's talk again in the future' mentality, which means a new phone call from the Toffees could happen.

However, the midfielder won't be the only one they talk about, as Ancelotti is also interested in Koulibaly.

The player and manager have an utmost respect for each other, and with Everton trying to 'regain prestige', signing a defender like the Senegalese would certainly mean business.
