Everton boss Ancelotti ready to move for Napoli striker Milik

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti remains keen on picking off the best talent from former club Napoli.

Kalidou Koulibaly, Allan and Hirving Lozano are all being linked with the Blues.

And Arena Napoli reports striker Arkadiusz Milik is also on Ancelotti's shortlist.

Everton are very much interested in the 26-year-old and are ready to launch a bid in the region of €30-35m for his services.

That's lower than what Napoli chief Aurelio di Laurentiis is looking for, he wants between €45-50m, but it's believed that the 'parties could meet halfway'.

Milik, for his part, would be set for a nice pay rise on Merseyside, with it believed there's a contract worth €4m per year on the table. In fact, the Blues offer is said to be 'more attractive' than others at this stage.
