Liverpool youngster Allan Rodrigues de Souza admits he is not sure if he will get a work visa allowing him to play for the Merseyside club.

Allan, 19, signed for the club from Internacional for £500,000 ($730,000) last summer. However, with no working visa he was immediately shipped out to Finnish club Seinäjoen Jalkapallokerho on loan. After helping them win their domestic league title, the Brazilian midfielder briefly returned to Anfield in October 2015, before leaving again for first-team football opportunities, joining Belgian club Sint-Truidense for the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

Speaking via Sint-Truidense's official website, Allan explained how he has enjoyed his time in Belgium, having made nine appearances since his arrival. But while he is looking forward to returning to his parent club, he admits the decision may be out of his hands.

"Klopp did not speak with me directly but guys from Liverpool gave me some information. Klopp and the technical staff are following my games and training," he said.

"I don't know about the future, a lot depends on my visa, it is not easy to get a visa in England. That's too bad because I look forward to playing for Liverpool. It's a big and a nice club. But Liverpool will decide about my future."

Allan is also hopeful his impressive loan spells away from Liverpool might earn him a spot in the Brazil team competing at this summer's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

"I am happy to represent my country, it's a dream come true to play in a championship for my country. Hopefully I can help my country to win the cup. Participating at the Olympics will not be easy because it is strong group of players. The group has been playing together for a while now.

"It is not impossible to be selected for Rio. But it will not be easy."

Should he manage to claim a spot in the Brazil squad this summer he will have the chance to link up with Barcelona superstar Neymar, who has opted to represent his country at the Olympics, rather than at the Copa America.

"What do you say about Neymar, he's one of my favourite players in the world, everybody loves him, his charisma and his game, it will be an honour to play with him and I will be there to support him when necessary."
