After abandoning the pursuit of Jude Bellingham, Liverpool has identified another potential talent for this summer’s transfer window.
Jude Bellingham had been one of Liverpool transfer targets this summer, but recently, a surprising turn of events occurred as reports confirmed that the Merseyside Reds will withdraw from the deal. One of the reasons cited was the excessive transfer fee demanded by Borussia Dortmund.
Immediately after parting ways with the English star, the team led by manager Jurgen Klopp quickly shifted focus to another midfielder with a more acceptable price tag. Specifically, international media revealed that Liverpool is now eyeing Brighton’s star midfielder, Alexis Mac Allister, as a potential alternative.
At the age of 24, the Argentine star is currently one of the hottest names in the transfer market. In the current season, Mac Allister has made a total of 29 appearances across all competitions, contributing 10 goals and 2 assists. His positive impact has played a significant role in helping Brighton secure the 7th position in the Premier League standings and become a formidable opponent for any team.
Furthermore, at the recent 2022 World Cup, the 1998-born midfielder was a key factor in Argentina’s well-deserved victory as the world champion.
With his impressive performances, Mac Allister is considered capable of shining at a bigger club in the future. Therefore, his father and representative, Carlos Mac Allister, acknowledged that his son may soon part ways with Brighton to seek a better destination in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Currently, the contract of Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister with Brighton is set to expire in the summer of 2025. According to sources from Relevo, Liverpool has intensified their negotiations to sign Alexis Mac Allister, and they want to make him the new Liverpool transfer done deal today. The Argentine star has been a standout performer for Brighton this season, impressing the footballing community.
As a versatile player who can excel as an attacking midfielder or a defensive midfielder when needed, Mac Allister’s flexibility and adaptability are expected to provide a valuable addition to Liverpool’s playing style. The transfer fee for the Brighton midfielder is estimated to be around £70 million. If it is success, Mac Allister will be one of Liverpool most expensive signings in history.
With players like Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, and Thiago Alcantara experiencing a dip in form or facing injuries, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is tasked with upgrading and strengthening the midfield area.
On the other hand, Mac Allister is in need of a new destination to elevate his career and pursue prestigious titles. Liverpool has emerged as a promising choice for the 24-year-old midfielder.
In addition, Liverpool faces tough competition from Manchester United and Arsenal in their pursuit of the 2022 World Cup champion’s services on Merseyside.
