Everton sign Allan from Napoli on three-year deal

Everton have completed the signing of Brazil midfielder Allan from Napoli on a three-year contract. Everton is reported to have paid Napoli €25m (£22.3m) plus an additional €3m (£2.7m) in incentives for his services.

Allan reunites with Carlo Ancelotti at Everton, having spent five years in Naples, and he worked under the Italian for two seasons while he was in charge of Napoli.

Everton beat off competition from Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund to secure the services of the Brazil international.

“It is a real pleasure to sign for Everton. I am immensely happy to be here,” Allan told evertontv. “I hope, like I have done in my entire career, I contribute with my performances together with my teammates and that I put in some great games, great performances and win important things.

“It is the size of the club and the name of the coach which means you don’t think twice about coming to Everton.”

Allan began his career at Vasco da Gama in his home country before moving to Serie A with Udinese in 2012. He joined Napoli in 2015 and helped Gennaro Gattuso side win the Coppa Italia last season.

The 29-year-old was also part of the Brazil squad – along with new club team-mate Richarlison – that won the Copa America in 2019.

James Rodriguez is also expected to be an Everton player soon.
