Liverpool has been monitoring Alexis Mac Allister ahead of the summer transfer window but the club is now looking to pounce

According to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool has now laid out their project to Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister. Additionally, the club has presented a proposal of potential financial terms to the Argentine midfielder. Romano describes the talks as advancing but that agreement is yet to be reached. There is an expectation that any move for Mac Allister will be early; sometime this month or in June.

Jack Gaughan of the Daily Mail states that there is a belief among players at Brighton that Mac Allister has his eyes set on Anfield.

As reported last month by The Top Flight, Liverpool dropped out of the race to sign Jude Bellingham and thus started to pursue Alexis Mac Allister. To put an end to any chance of singing Bellingham, the England midfielder is now expected to join Real Madrid this summer.

Alexis Mac Allister has had a successful season with Brighton with the club inching closer to playing in Europe next season. Mac Allister plays a variety of roles and positions in the Brighton midfield but generally speaking, is seen as attacking-minded. He has scored 10 goals and recorded 2 assists across all competitions this season for Brighton.

Mac Allister is a national team player for Argentina where he featured for them in the most recent World Cup. His contributions in Qatar included scoring against Poland in the group stage but also recording an assist in the final against France. Unsurprisingly, Mac Allister became the first Brighton player ever to win the World Cup.

Mac Allister’s contract runs until 2025 meaning Brighton is still in a position to receive a hefty fee. Nonetheless, if the player really wants Liverpool, they may not be able to stand much in his way.
