Born in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Allan rose slowly through the ranks as a youth product of his hometown club Internacional. Goal Brazil’s deputy editor Rodrigo Calvozzo claimed Allan "was always treated by Internacional as one of the most important players in the team."
On 2 September 2015, he was loaned to Finnish club Seinäjoen Jalkapallokerho on a short term deal. Allan scored on his debut eight days later, coming on in the 56th minute for Jussi Vasara and opening the scoring sixteen minutes later in a 1–1 draw away to KuPS. He finished the season with one goal in eight appearances, in the process helping the club win the Veikkausliiga title. On 29 October 2015, Allan returned from his loan spell to Liverpool, greeting the new manager of the club, Jürgen Klopp, for the first time.
On 18 January 2016, Liverpool announced that Allan had been loaned to Belgian club Sint-Truiden for the remainder of the season. He then returned to Liverpool in expectation of receiving a British work permit, which was not granted.
Style of play
A central midfielder by trade, Allan is primarily left-footed and employs a strong passing range, honed with time spent as a deep-lying playmaker in Brazil. Allan has proven himself a useful box-to-box midfielder with promising attacking instincts.
