Everton transfer news: Ancelotti offered Arkadiusz Milik after complicated Tottenham talks | Football | Sport
Everton have held initial talks with intermediaries about a potential deal for Arkadiusz Milik. The Poland international worked under Carlo Ancelotti at the San Paolo and now the Italian is open to a reunion on Merseyside.
Ancelotti has already brought Brazilian midfielder Allan with him from Naples and now Milik could follow in his footsteps before the October 5 deadline.
Napoli are keen to cash in on Milik this summer after the player failed to agree a contract extension.
He was set to join Roma in a deal worth around £22million before the move stalled due to the future of former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko.
Dzeko was close to joining Juventus before the Serie A champions completed the signing of Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid.
Express Sport understands that Everton have now entered the running for Milik, after being offered the chance to sign the player.
The future of Moise Kean is likely to have huge bearing on any final decision for Milik.
Juventus have contacted Mino Raiola in recent weeks about the possibility of bringing Kean back on loan while there has also been interest from AC Milan and Roma, according to reports in Italy.
The player came off the bench to score in the 4-2 Carabao Cup win at Fleetwood in midweek but did not look best pleased with his lack of minutes.
