ARSENAL AND ALEXIS MAC ALLISTER TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are showing interest in signing Alexis Mac Allister in the January transfer window. The report also claims that they will make a bid for him in the January transfer. It also claims that he was not the main target for the Gunners. However, it looks like their pursuit of signing Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz has ended. This is because the Brazilian midfielder signed a contract extension with Villa after failing to secure a move to the Gunners in the summer transfer window.
Therefore, it looks like Arsenal will try to secure the signature of Alexis Mac Allister. The report also claims that the Argentine midfielder is open to a potential move. However, he will not force a move out of Brighton. This is because he has great relationships with the coaching staff and with the board officials. The Brighton fans also admire the player. Therefore, it is clear that he does not want to ruin his great relations with the people at Brighton.
THE OTHER TOP EUROPEAN SIDES ARE ALSO SHOWING SERIOUS INTEREST IN THE ARGENTINE MIDFIELDER
A number of reports also claim that Atletico Madrid and Tottenham are also showing serious interest in Alexis Mac Allister. Hence, Arsenal are going to face tough competition for the signature of the Argentine midfielder. The report also claims that Tottenham and the Gunners lead the race for his signature. This is because Alexis Mac Allister prefers a move to the Premier League. Hence, Atletico will have a lot of convincing to do to win the signature of the Brighton midfielder.
One thing that is not clear is the price tag of the Argentine midfielder. It is because he has recently signed a contract until 2025 before the World Cup. Hence, Brighton are not at all under the pressure of selling him for an undervalued price. However, rumors of leaving are going to happen for the Argentine midfielder. Arsenal are also certainly going to keep an eye on the situation. They will also hope that Brighton does not start quoting a very high price for the Argentine midfielder.
This is because Arsenal are trying to first complete the signing of winger Mykhaylo Mudryk for around 60-70 million. Hence, almost all of the January budget will be spent on the winger signing. However, despite that Mikel Arteta wants to sign a midfielder in January. Although, he will have to function within budget.
