Liverpool loanee Allan has hinted that he would prefer to stay at Fluminense rather than return to Anfield.
In an interview with Brazilian media outlet Globo Esporte, Allan revealed that he was happy at Fluminense.
He added that he would be happy to stay for another two or three years, hinting that he does not see a future at Liverpool.
The 22-year-old joined Liverpool in 2015 after leaving Brazilian side Internacional. His loan spell at Fluminense is his sixth temporary stint away from Liverpool.
And with no senior games to his name for the Reds, the Brazil under-20 international seems to favour a return to his home country.
Allan has been playing for Fluminense – who are based in Rio de Janeiro – since January after his loan spell at Eintracht Frankfurt was cut short.
He told Globo Esporte (translated by Sport Witness): “For me, I would stay here for two or three years. But it does not depend on me alone. I want to stay and show my football. I hope there’s an agreement with Fluminense to stay a little longer. I like the club, the city and I want to stay here.”
The main reason for Allan’s numerous loan spells has been a struggle to obtain a work permit for the youngster.
And given his lack of success in Germany earlier this season, it looks unlikely that Allan will be granted a work permit to return to Liverpool.
That major stumbling block, coupled with Allan being settled at Fluminense, surely points to a permanent exit.
