Everton have reportedly made contact over a player that Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti previously described as “very important” to his then team.
However, his time at the Stadio San Paolo looking to be coming to an end, with his contract expiring in the summer and no breakthrough over a new deal.
Area Napoli claims that Callejon is open to remaining at the club, but president Aurelio De Laurentiis hasn’t offered him more than what he currently earns.
In addition, the 33-year-old reportedly wanted a sign-on fee of 2 to 3 million Euro (£1.8m to £2.7m) but the Napoli president hasn’t offered this either, added the report.
Everton and Aston Villa are said to have made contact over his services, as have Valencia, Sevilla and Villarreal, and Callejon is said to favour a move to Spain.
Callejon is a top player with an impressive CV and great goal contribution numbers who’d be a great asset for Ancelotti, a manager who knows him well.
“He has a great sense of belonging in the side and he is very important here,” Ancelotti is quoted by Football Italia as saying last April.
“He is one of the keys to our success. When he wears this jersey, he feels something special.”
With Ancelotti now at Everton and Callejon potentially looking for a new club, could the Spaniard become one of the keys to the Toffees’ success in future?
