The Belgium international had been almost certainty to join the Italian club after talks between the two but it is understood those talks have collapsed and his move to Everton could be back on.

The 27-year-old is said to be a transfer priority for boss Ronald Koeman and the Dutchman could be heading towards his first major signing since taking charge.

There have also been reports of interest from other Premier League clubs – namely Tottenham and Chelsea – but Everton are said to be the favourites to land Witsel in a £12m deal.
