Everton have signed Brazilian midfielder Allan from Napoli on a three-year contract for a charge believed to be round £21.7m.
Allan is Everton’s first signing of the summer season and the transfer reunites him with former Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti.
“It is an actual excitement to sign for Everton. I’m immensely satisfied to be right here,” mentioned the 29-year-old.
Everton also are final on offers for Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez from Real Madrid.
Allan performed 61 video games underneath Ancelotti at Napoli, and he says the Italian did “the whole lot conceivable” to convey him to Goodison Park.
Allan added: “I am hoping, like I’ve completed in my complete profession, I give a contribution with my performances at the side of my team-mates and that I installed some nice video games, nice performances and win vital issues.
“It is a membership with a wealthy historical past within the Premier League, has actual ambition after which there may be ‘Professor’ Ancelotti.
“It is the scale of the membership and the title of the trainer which means that you do not think carefully about coming to Everton.”
