Everton midfield is definitely being overhauled as new faces could be seen at Goodison Park soon. Allan was part of Carlo Ancelotti’s revolution, arriving in 2020 and signing a three year deal. Under Ancelotti, the Brazilian sat deep in the midfield, mopping up around him and guarding the backline.

In the final stretch of the season, Lampard trusted the experience and leadership of Fabian Delph over Allan and even when Delph got injured, Gomes came into the lineup as the former Napoli man was nursing a knock.

Allan has been touted for an exit with Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri eyeing a reunion with the Brazilian. The Serie A side were dreaming of signing Ruben Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea but his agent has cooled down any Chelsea exit talks. Lazio are ready to target Allan as an alternative to Loftus-Cheek.

Allan arrived from Napoli for £25 million and the Toffees would like to recoup maximum amount possible. The Merseysiders are transitioning into a new transfer philosophy of signing players who will have future resale value which is why names of Joao Palhinha and Cheick Doucoure have been surfacing in the news feeds every other day for the holding midfield role.

Allan earns £70,000 per week which means he pockets around £3.6 million per season. If Everton does not have plans to renew him before next summer, selling him in this window will be a wise decision.

Amount of wages that can be saved with 3 player departures: £6.25 million (Mina’s wages) + £5.8 million (Gomes’ wages) + £3.6 million (Allan’s wages)

= £15.65 million
