Udinese star Allan Marques Loureiro’s agent Claudio Vagheggi has revealed that his client is open to a move abroad amid interest from Chelsea, reports the Metro.
The defensive midfielder is expected to make a move in the summer, but no clear favourite has emerged for his signature. Vagheggi has shed some light on the situation, revealing that there are options both domestically and abroad for the 24-year-old.
He said: “I’d rather not say too much and not mention a few teams in particular. But I confirm that there are options both in Serie A and the other championships.”
The Brazilian could be a replacement for Ramires at Stamford Bridge, with the latter struggling to play ahead of Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic in the last campaign. Allan played 37 times for Udinese last time round, and was particularly successful against Juventus and Paul Pogba in a 0-0 draw back in February.
However, even with this experience the centre-mid could be hard pressed to break in to a Blues side which won both the Premier League and the Capital One Cup last term. They were even crowned top flight champions with three games to spare and weren’t really threatened by any other teams after January.
