EVERTON manager Carlo Ancelotti has demanded a move for Ciro Immobile, according to reports.
90min report the Italian boss has asked for substantial backing in the transfer market from club execs.
Lazio’s Ciro Immobile is wanted by Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti
And one of his No1 targets is Lazio striker Immobile who has bagged 34 goals in Serie A with two games still to play.
The Italian striker has almost averaged a goal a game, with seven assists also coming in his 35 appearances so far this campaign.
Immobile could finish the season with 40 goals in all competitions for the second time in the last three years.
The 30-year-old has outshone and outscored Cristiano Ronaldo in the Italian league with the Juventus man trailing behind on 31 goals in 32 appearances.
Carlo Ancelotti wants to make his mark on the Everton squad
Ancelotti is believed to have asked for more control over EVERY transfer in and out of the club.
It comes just weeks after a hilarious gaffe saw the former Chelsea manager have no idea who Luke Garbutt was as he left Everton after 11 years.
Ancelotti wants to build his own squad and is thought to be looking for assurances over the transfer war chest available to him.
He arrived in December after being tempted by the project put to him by owner Farhad Moshiri.
But the three-time Champions League winner is under no illusions over the size of the task at hand after a disappointing 12th place finish in the Prem.
The Italian, 61, wants proof funds will be freed up for signings such as Immobile – who will cost in excess of £50million – before committing his long-term future to the Toffees.
Moshiri is like to provide some cash for new players but wants to see his money turned into a top six finish by Ancelotti.
