Juventus are reportedly showing interest in signing Alexis Mac Allister in the January transfer window. Arsenal are also monitoring the situation of the Argentine midfielder.

JUVENTUS AND ALEXIS MAC ALLISTER TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY

According to reports, Juventus are showing interest in Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister in the January transfer window. The report also claims that they are going to make an offer for him. It also claims that the Argentine midfielder is open to a move to the Italian giants. However, the player is in no hurry to leave the Premier League side. The Argentine midfielder is happy to play the remainder of the season with Brighton. However, he is open to listening to Juventus.

The report also claims that the Italian giants see him as Adrien Rabiot long-term replacement. This is because he has still not signed a new long-term contract with the Italian giants. Hence, there is a chance that he might leave the club in next summer transfer on a free transfer. This is because a number of Premier League clubs are keeping an eye on the Rabiot contract situation. Another reason to sign Mac Allister is he will be on fewer wages compared to the likes of Adrien Rabiot. Hence, the potential deal also makes sense financially.

ARSENAL AND TOTTENHAM ARE ALSO MONITORING THE SITUATION

The report also claims that Arsenal and Tottenham are also monitoring the situation. However, the Gunners are focusing on signing Mykhaylo Mudryk. Whereas, Tottenham does not want 35 million on a single player in the January transfer window. Tottenham manager Conte said,

“We will try to do something, but we have to follow the club’s vision,”

“Tottenham want to invest on young players, as we did with Kulusevski and Bentancur. Talents but with accessible salaries. This is what we’ll try to do”.

Hence, it is looking like Juventus are leading the race for the midfielder. However, they have one big problem that will make the transfer difficult. The Italian giants are currently facing a financial crisis this season. They are also under investigation for some transfer deals. Hence, their board had to resign recently. Therefore, even if they clear the investigation, they will have to sell players before buying new players. Hence, they will have to sell their fringe players to buy Alexis Mac Allister.

Therefore, Juventus will hope that they can complete the potential signing of Alexis Mac Allister. However, they will have to know that they need to arrange the finances and sell fringe players to make signings in the January transfer window. Whereas, Brighton will hope that the midfielder stays until the end of the season to challenge for the top 6.
