Everton boss Ancelotti determined to prise midfield duo away from Napoli

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti continues to be linked with his former Napoli players.

The Daily Star says Ancelotti is preparing to launch a double transfer raid on former club Napoli as he looks to recruit two stars in the form of Allan and Hirving Lozano.

Having only been appointed Toffees boss in late December, Ancelotti didn't make any signings in January despite being linked with a move for Napoli players Piotr Zielinski, Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens.

Now, however, the Everton manager is reportedly eyeing up box-to-box midfielder Allan, who was previously close to joining Paris St-Germain for £70m last year.

Ancelotti's other target is Mexican winger Hirving Lozano, who was previously watched by Premier League giants Manchester United.
