City want Allan

Manchester City are interested in singing Napoli’s Allan, according to Italian media outlet Calcio Napoli 24.

Having spent three and a half years with Vasco Da Gama, the Brazilian moved to Italy in 2012 to join Udinese. Another three years later, he made the switch to Naples. Earlier this year manager Maurizzio Sarri left for Chelsea and took Jorginho with him, to the dismay of City boss Pep Guardiola who has been looking for a suitable long-term replacement for Fernandinho for a long time now. The Premier League also missed out on Fred, who moved from Shakhtar to Manchester United.

Jorginho’s departure from Napoli opened a new world of possibilities in midfield for Allan, and since Carlo Ancelotti took over from Sarri, the 27-year-old has been outstanding.

Guardiola’s attenton has therefore turned to him now, as the Catalan coach still mulls over the right way to perform an imminent revamp of his team’s middle part.
