So Napoli and willing to let Allan go as they want to replace him with Vlasic, hmmm something wrong with this picture!
The latest reports from Italy claim the Blues are interested in a potential £25m move for the 29-year-old, with Napoli identifying CSKA Moscow's Vlasic as a potential replacement, just a year after he joined the Russian club from Everton on a permanent basis.
And RAI Sport journalist Ciro Venerato has offered an update on Napoli's stance regarding both players when speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss about the future of Allan, including confirmation of the Blues' interest.
“Allan will leave and Nikola Vlasic can arrive who is a different player, more of a dribbler," he said. "In this sense, it would seem that Napoli wants a midfielder with such characteristics and not Allan.
