Many Everton fans reacted excitedly to reports that Napoli ace Allan is on his way to Finch Farm to finalise his transfer to the Merseyside club.
In a clip posted by Football Daily on their official Twitter page, the Brazilian international can be seen getting into a vehicle that is reportedly heading to the Toffees’ training ground.
Indeed, Allan would arguably be an upgrade on the current central midfield players available to Carlo Ancelotti at Goodison Park, as the 29-year old averaged more tackles and key passes than Fabian Delph, Tom Davies and Andre Gomes in their respective domestic leagues in the 2019/20 season, as per WhoScored.
Would Allan start for Everton under Carlo Ancelotti?
With two other midfielders in James Rodriguez and Abdoulaye Doucoure reportedly very close to joining as well, the Toffees will be looking forward to a new-look midfield come the start of the 2020/21 season.
These Everton supporters loved seeing the footage of Allan, with one fan branding him a ‘beast’:
The beast. Love it.
