Everton: Allan signs for Al Wahda on permanent deal

Everton: Allan signs for Al Wahda on permanent deal -Everton News

Allan has left Everton and signed for Abu Dhabi-based Al Wahda on a permanent deal, with Fabrizio Romano taking to Twitter to relay the news late on Sunday night.

The Lowdown: Allan’s Toffees career

With former Toffees manager Carlo Ancelotti wanting to reunite with the defensive midfielder, with whom he worked at Napoli, the Brazilian joined the Merseyside club in 2020 in a deal worth £21.7m.

During his two-year tenure at Goodison Park, the 31-year-old made 57 appearances for the Toffees, 52 of which came in the Premier League.

However, under Frank Lampard’s reign, Allan featured just 13 times for the club, failing to make a single appearance in the 2022/23 season as he was continually snubbed by the manager.

The Latest: Allan’s move

Romano has shared news of Allan’s departure from Merseyside.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday night, the reliable journalist stated: “Brazilian midfielder Allan has signed with Al Wahda on permanent deal from Everton. #transfers

“Medical completed and contracts signed in the last few hours, Allan leaves the Premier League. #EFC”

The Verdict: Replaced by younger talent

After a decent first season with Everton as a regular under Ancelotti’s guidance, Allan seemed to be a strong signing for the Blues, who came in as one of the club’s highest-paid players on £120,000 per week.

However, his propensity for injuries and decreasing levels of athleticism meant that he fell further down Lampard’s pecking order at the club, leading to some journalists issuing unforgiving labels such as ‘imposter’ towards the Brazilian.

With the likes of Amadou Onana and James Garner, accompanied by the highly experienced Idrissa Gueye, joining the club this summer, the Toffees clearly turned their attention to the long-term future of the squad.

Therefore, Allan’s departure will not come as a big surprise for Everton fans, as the club now seem to be on a different trajectory this season.
