It looks like Brazilian clubs are really starting to move for the signing of Allan from Liverpool.
Following the midfielder’s positive loan spell at Fluminense, the Rio de Janeiro side were the first to make a bid for his permanent transfer.
As reported by Globo Esporte, the club offered an amount which ‘fit their financial reality’, and would still give the Reds 50% of a future move.
It’s been claimed that Liverpool aren’t interested in another loan, so with Allan’s contract expiring next summer, the Premier League side would like to sell him now.
Then in another update from Globo Esporte, it’s claimed that São Paulo were interested in the signing, but have taken a ‘step back’ after seeing the player’s price and the competition he’s been attracting.
It’s said there’s been some talk that Atlético Mineiro are offering R$12m (£2.4m) for Allan, and since São Paulo think that’s too much, their interest has gone cold.
This auction is good news for Liverpool, who will be trying to get as much as possible with his sale in January.
