Frank Lampard revealed that Allan was left out of Everton's match-day squad against West Ham purely because of selection reasons.
But the Toffees manager was tight-lipped when asked by LiverpoolWorld about the midfielder being linked with a move to the United Arab Emirates.
Everton earned their first Premier League win of the season as they edged the Hammers 1-0 at Goodison Park.
Neal Maupay fired the only goal of the game - and his first for the club - in the 53rd minute.
Lampard opted for a midfield trio of Idrissa Gana Gueye, Amadou Onana and Alex Iwobi, while the fit-again Abdoulaye Doucoure, summer signing James Garner and Tom Davies were on the bench.
As a result, Allan was omitted from Lampard’s match-day set-up, having been on the fringes of things since the summer.
Reports have suggested that Allan has attracted interest from the UAE, with the country's transfer window shutting on 4 October.
But Lampard would not reveal if there are plans for Allan to either stay or depart Everton.
The Toffees boss said: “We’ll see, we’ll see. He was out of the squad because you have got those decisions sometimes.
“So we will see over the next week or two.”
