Liverpool continues to be linked heavily with Alexis Mac Allister and there should be no surprise if we see him move to Anfield.
As per a report by Tutto Mercato Web, the Reds have already reached an agreement worth €60 million with Brighton.
It has been reported that the Merseysiders are ready to offer a five-year contract worth £22million+ with Mac Allister to get the signing done.
Currently, the Argentine is earning a reported salary of around £50,000 a week with Brighton. However, if the player agrees to join the Reds he would be earning reportedly £85,000 a week.
Liverpool chasing Alexis Mac Allister
The Italian news source reported that Liverpool are closer to signing the Brighton man. However, the Reds are currently not in a UCL spot for the next season and it would be not-so-meaningless if the player joins the Reds even if they don’t qualify for the Champions League.
The main reason is, Brighton are currently in 7th place and could possibly end up in a Europa League spot. The Seagulls could be playing in the Europa League as they are just 2 points off of Spurs in 6th place but with 3 games in hand.
The World Cup winner could be the main man for De Zerbi’s team if they are to compete in Europa League. However, he might not be the first name on the sheet with Liverpool, who might also end up with Brighton in the Europa League. The 24-year-old could be the main man for the Reds’ new midfield era and the star player, that he already is, at the Amex stadium.
Currently, Liverpool are in 5th spot and are in the best of forms in their poor season. They have won all of their 5 games of their last 5 games. Meanwhile, the Seagulls defeated Man Utd and moved up to 7th place.
Moreover, with 3 games in hand, Brighton could dethrone Spurs from 6th place and chase a Europa League spot. But the final run of games for Brighton are quite tricky. They would face Arsenal, Newcastle, and Man City, but we do know De Zerbi’s men could surprise any team on their day.
The South American midfielder has directly contributed to 13 goals this term for the Seagulls. At the FIFA World Cup, he netted a goal in the group stages vs Poland. Also, he set up Argentina’s second goal in the final vs France.
