Reds are currently in the process of finalizing the remaining details to secure the signing of Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Allister. According to renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano. This development comes shortly after the Reds confirmed the departure of several players for the upcoming season. Including James Milner, who is rumored to be potentially joining Brighton.
Reports indicate that Liverpool is actively seeking to revamp their midfield lineup in preparation for the upcoming season. With the goal of enhancing their competitiveness after falling short in the current campaign. Despite their efforts, the Reds appear poised to miss out on a top-four finish in the Premier League and consequently fail to secure a spot in the prestigious Champions League tournament.
Fabrizio Romano has provided an update stating that Liverpool is on the verge of reaching a complete agreement regarding personal terms with Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister. Including finalizing the salary details. The Merseyside club is reportedly aware of the intense competition for Mac Allister’s signature. Which has spurred them to expedite the resolution of the remaining aspects and secure a deal for his signing promptly.
Romano further explains that Brighton is well aware of Mac Allister’s desire to depart from the club. The plan is for the midfielder to leave early in the summer transfer window. With a potential departure possibly being finalized as early as June.
Reds going berserk for Mac Alister
Above all as Liverpool prepares for the departure of Naby Keita and James Milner following the expiration of their contracts. It appears that Alexis Mac Allister is being considered as a potential replacement for one of them. The 24-year-old midfielder showcased his influence during the recent Qatar World Cup. Particularly impressing with his performances for Argentina, including a standout display in the final victory over France.
Notably, Mac Allister has also enjoyed a superb season at his current club, Brighton & Hove Albion. With 12 goals and two assists in 37 appearances, he has played a crucial role in their push for a top-seven finish in the Premier League. Such a placement would secure European football for Roberto de Zerbi’s side in the upcoming season.
Moreover, Mac Allister’s versatility in midfield, along with his energetic and creative playing style. Make him an ideal fit for Jurgen Klopp’s system at Liverpool. Earlier this season, Manchester United legend Paul Ince hailed him as a “very, very special player.” With reported wages of £50,000 per week, securing Mac Allister’s signature could prove to be a remarkable addition for Liverpool.
