At 550k on PC at the time of writing this Allan represents one of the more marquee players of TOTS so far which impressively sees him boast high 80's in all of his stats bar shooting. Since selling RTTF Fabinho for a huge profit several months earlier I've felt a huge void in midfield which has left me vulnerable in many critical situations that have cost me games therefore when I saw Allan's TOTS card I instantly had to build a team that could fit him in.
In-game Allan is joy to control with his 4* skill moves and absurdly high balance and agility; he effortlessly switches direction allowing him to pull off passes in extremely tight positions. Now whilst his goal contributions haven't exactly set the world alight in my 20 games with him he has been instrumental at allowing me to assert midfield control in my weekend league games, for someone who is just 5'9" he has the physical presence of a god. From my experiences so far he plays like the love-child of TOTY Kante and Fred whilst he played at Shaktar.
However, at the current asking price of 550k I decided to sell him (I initially bought him at 430k which therefore saw me make a profit of around 100k after tax) as his price will only trend downwards over the coming days as more SBCs and cars come out. It is with that in mind that I do undoubtedly recommend him if:
a) You have plenty of spare coins such that the 100-200k you may lose when he drops in value will not bother you
b) You don't plan on selling him and have a complete team such that the cheaper price in the coming days wont affect you
Passing (easily one of the best passers of the ball I've used this year)
Heading (he is surprisingly very capable at winning aerial duels with the opponents attackers, he certainly has more presence in the air than I expected)
Shooting (if left unboosted it leaves a little to be desired for, however with a little boost he seems to unleash rockets)
3* weak foot (doesn't seem to affect his passing on his weak foot, however his left footed shots can be wild at times)
if u have 2 cdm and other one is a physically strong and tall player, you will love him. but he is not that good as solo cdm or box to box. height is a big con. he is very cheap player so if u are trying to create budget squad it will be good for u. if you trying to create expensive end game squad pass him. get vieira or petit.
easy to link
short for a cdm
cant shoot well
not a game changer
