Alexis Mac Allister appears to be on the verge of signing with Liverpool as a result of Fabrizio Romano’s remarks that the transfer between Liverpool and Brighton is a “done deal.” Romano also named three other players that Jurgen Klopp may target in the future.
As soon as Liverpool made the decision not to acquire Jude Bellingham owing to his exorbitant price tag, Mac Allister became one of their top priorities as a player to sign. Mac Allister has had an outstanding season with Brighton, during which the attacking midfielder has bagged 12 goals and three assists in a total of 40 games played.
The officials for the Reds have been impressed by Allister’s performance. Mac Allister was also a significant contributor to Argentina’s victory in the World Cup at the end of the previous year.
Despite the fact that the playmaker performed exceptionally well in both the Premier League and the World Cup, Real Madrid will not have to pay anywhere near the £108 million that they will need to in order to acquire Bellingham. According to Romano, Liverpool will spend “way less” than the reported sum of £60 million to acquire Mac Allister.
On Sunday, it became public knowledge that his camp had traveled to England in order to negotiate a deal at Anfield. In addition, Luciano Guaycochea, Mac Allister’s cousin, who currently plays for the Malaysian side Perak, has lately dropped a major hint regarding the transfer.
“I cannot say where he is going to play, but everyone knows the Liverpool deal is close,” he remarked. “I can’t say where he’s going to play.” “This is a really large squad. But I hope that he can be successful in his playing endeavors wherever he goes.
The ‘here we go’ confirmation that Liverpool fans have been looking for has now been provided by Romano via Twitter. He disclosed that the 24-year-old player and Liverpool have reached a comprehensive agreement on personal conditions, and it is in effect.
Mac Allister is close to finalizing a new contract with Liverpool that will keep him playing for the club through June 2028. The deal calls for a five-year term.
The buyout clause for Mac Allister will be matched by Liverpool “within the next few days.” It is not known for certain how much money will be required to acquire the player; nevertheless, as stated earlier, the amount will be significantly lower than sixty million pounds.
The transfer of Alexis MacAllister to Liverpool has been “completed.”
Romano also mentions that Liverpool will conduct a medical exam on Mac Allister within the following 24–48 hours. In the final part of his tweet, he states that the trade is a “done deal.”
In a separate piece of news, an Italian journalist identified three different central midfielders that Liverpool might target once they have resolved their issues with the Mac Allister transfer. They are Manu Kone, a star player for Borussia Monchengladbach; Khephren Thuram, a rising star for Nice; and Gabri Veiga, a player for Celta Vigo.
It appears that either Kone or Thuram have a greater chance of being signed by Liverpool than Veiga does. This is due to the fact that the Reds have previously engaged in conversation with the representatives of Kone and Thuram, whereas at this time they are merely lovers of Veiga.
However, a lot can happen in the span of a week during the transfer season, and it’s possible that Liverpool will end up heading in a completely different direction than they had originally planned.
In either case, Liverpool supporters will be overjoyed to learn that the club is finally taking steps to address the issues they have been facing in the middle of the field by making signing Mac Allister a top priority.
In the meantime, a prominent player in the Premier League has opened up about his plans for the future in light of reports that Liverpool and Arsenal are interested in acquiring his talents.
