Liverpool complete deal for Brazilian starlet – report
By Harvey Byrne
Liverpool’s Brazilian midfielder Allan Rodrigues de Souza has joined Hertha Berlin on loan.
The Bundesliga side posted on their official Twitter account on Tuesday morning that the 19-year-old was training with them.
The Hertha Berlin tweet translates as: ‘A new face at the start of the training week: The 19 year old Brazilian Allan of the @LFC introduces himself!’

The Liverpool Echo have reported that he’s joined the club on a loan deal, after the Liverpool Echo also revealed earlier in July that the Reds were planning a third loan move for the youngster in the hope of acquiring a work permit for him. No official announcement has been made by Liverpool yet.
Allan was temporarily shipped out to Finland’s SJK at the start of September 2015, but returned to the club in late October after making eight appearances for the Finnish champions.

The Brazil Under-20 international was then loaned to Belgian side Sint-Truiden for six months from January 2016, where he starred in nine encounters.
Manager Jurgen Klopp is a big admirer of Allan, who moved to Merseyside from Brazilian outfit Internacional last summer for a fee of around £500k.
Allan caught the eye of Liverpool scouts after playing against the club’s youth team in January 2014’s Frenz International Cup in Indonesia, and the Reds pushed through the deal last summer.
