Liverpool continue to be heavily linked with Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Allister and the Argentinian sensation appears to be high on the list of priorities at Anfield.
Why Aren’t People Talking About Manchester City’s 115 Charges?
“I don’t think the player is an issue. It doesn’t feel like that anyway. It feels like Liverpool can get Mac Allister. I think the money is the question, what’s the fee going to be? What are Liverpool going to agree with Brighton.
“I think Brighton are resigned to losing him. You’ve heard the comments from the Chief Executive and the manager. Brighton are resigned to losing at least one, probably both of Caicedo and Mac Allister leaving this summer.
“I think Mac Allister is at the level where the button can be pushed on him in terms of you can rely on him. Exciting player whoever gets him. I think Liverpool will get him, I think Liverpool will end up with Mac Allister playing for them next season and it’ll be who comes in alongside that.
“Mac Allister looks like he’s definitely on the move this summer and Liverpool will be very close to the front of the queue.”
Getting a deal over the line for the Argentine star would be brilliant business from the Anfield club. Jurgen Klopp notoriously wants his new players through the door swiftly. Hailed as ‘amazing’ by teammate Joel Veltman following his World Cup exploits, Mac Allister would be a readymade option to bolster the ranks at Liverpool.
