Plenty of Everton fans have been lauding the latest transfer link to Allan as Il Matino (via The Gwladys Street) reported that the Merseyside club have raised their offer to €38 million, which is the equivalent of around £34.6 million.
As per the outlet, the deal is now ‘close’ to being completed as the SSC Napoli ace has apparently already had personal terms agreed for a while and will earn €4.7 million a year or €90,000 per week, which equates to roughly £82,000 a week, for three years.
Indeed, Allan would be quite the coup for Carlo Ancelotti’s team given that the central midfield player has averaged more tackles and key passes per Serie A game so far in comparison to Fabian Delph, Tom Davies and Andre Gomes in the 2019/20 Premier League season, according to Whoscored.
Based off of these stats the 29-year old would arguably slot straight into the side, as one member of the Goodison Park faithful labelled him as a ‘terrier’ based off of his superior tackling ability.
Would Allan start for Everton under Carlo Ancelotti?
Another EFC supporter claimed that he would be ‘filling the Gueye/Barry void’ if he were to join, as both Idrissa Gueye and Gareth Barry played a high number of games in the holding midfield role for the Toffees.

This is a much needed boost. Would be a great signing, filling the Guaye/Barry void.

Allan is leagues ahead of Hjobjerg. This is a great signing, regardless of the cost.

All for it if we can get Allan in. The lad will add competitiveness and zest to our midfield which is sorely required. Even at 29 he will be good for another 3 or four seasons. @EvertonBlueArmy .

Made up if we get this sorted. He’s a terrier and will do what it takes to win the ball back, skilful and got an eye for a pass. Age is irrelevant. Gareth Barry was old but has been one of the better midfielders at this club in recent times. He’s just helped WBA get promoted.
