The Italian was the subject of interest in the summer but Napoli were reluctant to sell.

Everton have seemingly gone back in for Napoli’s Manolo Gabbiadini after a summer move failed to materialise, and a deal could be completed for €20million according to Tancredi Palmeri.

The Italian has failed to have any impact in Naples so far this season, scoring only 3 times in 17 appearances with the majority of those goals coming in the form of penalties.

The Toffees were set to land their man back in the summer but Napoli refused to sell due to Gonzalo Higuain moving to Juventus. The Naples club hoped that Manolo would be able to fill the big boots left by the Argentinian, but that has not been the case.

Now, Everton will look to seal a €20million deal as they look to make a splash in the January window. The Blues failed to land their targets in the summer but Farhad Moshiri has reiterated that will not be the case this time round.

Everton are also set to complete deals for Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay as Ronald Koeman looks to give his squad a shakeup.
