"There are talks that are ongoing at the moment and Keegan could possibly be heading out to Italy."

Spezia finished 16th last season and is coached by Brazilian Thiago Motta while Verona were in ninth position, with Gabriele Cioffi as their head coach.

Allan was a key part of AmaTuks finishing second in last season's GladAfrica Championship. The side fell at the final hurdle in the PSL Play-Off Tournament alongside Cape Town All Stars as Moroka Swallows ultimately dodged the relegation axe.

Allan was linked with a move to Orlando Pirates as the club moved to reshape its central defence, as was reported by Soccer Laduma.

He has one international appearance to his name, turning out for South Africa's under-20s against England's under-18 team in 2017. Amajita won the encounter 2-1, with Allan coming of in the 79th minute with an injury.

Orlando Pirates' next target has been reportedly been revealed with the season coming to a close.

As reported by Sports Brief, it was revealed in the media that the University of Pretoria defender Keegan Allen could be on his way to join the Buccaneers ahead of next season.

The 21-year-old was impressive in helping AmaTuks finish as runners-up in last season's GladAfrica Championship, ultimately failing to reach the DStv Premiership.
