The duo would be reuniting following a year together at Paris Saint-Germain which proved to be fruitful.

Zlatan scored 35 goals in the 12/13 season as PSG went on to win Ligue 1 for the first time in 19 years.

'I'll call him tonight and say we're waiting!' Ancelotti joked after Napoli's 2-0 win over Hellas Verona in October.

'I have a great deal of affection for him, I saw he scored 29 goals in 30 MLS games. Tomorrow, after I've called him, I'll let you know how it went!'

Everton fans on Twitter are getting very excited about the possible transfer.

'We can confirm that thus far no contract offer has been made and no candidate has chosen to withdraw from the process.'

It'd be an unreal signing that we'd all love to see.
