The Liverpool midfielder has been on the season-long loan with Cypriot side Apollon Limassol, but according to Goal he now faces four months on the sidelines after this injury setback.

The 21-year-old joined Liverpool in the summer of 2015 for a fee of £500,000 from Brazilian side Internacional. Since his arrival at Anfield, Allan has been sent on four loan spells to Finland with
Seinäjoen Jalkapallokerho, Belgium with Sint-Truiden, Germany with Hertha Berlin and now Apollon Limassol.
Allan had made 16 Cypriot First Division appearances for Limassol this season and had also made four appearances in the Europa League. Limassol with drawn with Everton for their Europa League group and managed a draw against the Toffees away from home.

Allan made enough league appearances this season to earn him a championship medal. Limassol are currently two points behind league leaders APOEL. A series of shoulder dislocations this season has unfortunately stopped Allan from seeing out the rest of the season.
Limassol agreed to cut Allan's loan deal short in order for him to recover at his parent club. Once he returns from his four month spell on the sidelines, it is likely that the Brazilian will be shipped back out on loan. Clubs in Germany, France, and the Netherlands are reportedly keen to sign the promising midfielder.
