Alain’s move to Everton is closer than ever on Wednesday afternoon as the Brazilian midfielder was photographed arriving in Liverpool on a private jet.
The Napoli midfielder was seen getting off the plane with his wife, Taís Marquez, and they were transported by a club employee.
He traveled to Liverpool to undergo a medical examination with Everton before closing a key worth £ 21 million, which would see him reunite with Carlo Ancelotti.

The two worked together during Ancelotti’s tenure in Naples and made Italian Alan a home goal while looking to refresh Everton’s midfield on the eve of the new Premier League season.
Alain, the Brazilian international, adds international acclaim as well as his Champions League experience to the Everton Group.
He has been in Napoli since 2015 and has played 212 games in all competitions for the Italian team.
Alan has proven himself as a reliable midfielder in Serie A, where he won the Coppa Italia
Alain was part of the team that won the Coppa Italia last season, as Gennaro Gattuso’s side beat Juventus on penalties in the final.
His departure from Napoli was expected last year when Paris Saint-Germain announced his interest, but with Ancelotti’s leadership, Alain remained in Naples.
Now the husband appears ready to renew his acquaintance in England.
Alan is the first piece in what could be a busy summer rebuilding Ancelotti in midfield and attack.
The Italian coach is also keen on reuniting another of his former players, James Rodriguez.

The Colombian is not favored at Real Madrid with Zinedine Zidane and Ancelotti appears ready to give him a defeat.
Rodriguez, who joined Real Madrid in 2014 from Monaco, struggled to be persuaded at the Bernabeu after he was sent on loan for two seasons to Bayern Munich in 2017.
Despite having opportunities to impress Zinedine Zidane, it is now clear that his future is still far from the league champions, and Goodison Park could prove his next destination.
