Tottenham keen on Napoli’s 27-year-old midfielder Allan27th November 2018
Tottenham interested in Napoli’s Allan
According to Italian outlet, Calcio Napoli 24, Tottenham are interested in signing Napoli midfielder, Allan.
Allan has also been linked with a move to Manchester City recently; however, as Pep Guardiola came out and said City would not sign anyone in January, it is unlikely they will move for Allan.
The 27-year-old would reportedly command a fee in the region of 40 million Euros.
Allan joined Napoli in 2015 from fellow Serie A side Udinese for a fee of around £10 million.

Since signing for Napoli, Allan has played 149 games in all competitions for the Serie A side, in which he has scored eight and assisted 19.
Allan has also enjoyed a solid start to the 2018/19 season.
The Brazilian has played 17 games across all competitions and has assisted two in that time.
Spurs fail to sign anyone in the summer
While Spurs are being linked with a few players heading into the winter window, they did not sign a single player over the summer.
This meant Tottenham became the first side not to sign a single player in a summer transfer window since 2003.
Despite this, Tottenham are enjoying their best start to a Premier League season ever.
They have just beaten Chelsea 3-1 and are currently 3rd in the Premier League.
However, if Spurs do want to push to that next level with Man City and Liverpool, signing Allan may go someway to doing that.
Allan may also be a replacement for Mousa Dembele.
The 31-year-old’s contract with Spurs is set to run out in July of 2019.
