Alexis McAllister’s agent and burgess will be travelling to England to negotiate with Liverpool.
Liverpool have received a less than satisfactory report card this season. Before the start of the season, they were considered strong title favourites alongside Manchester City, but they stuttered from the opening day and never really got going. In the end, Liverpool crashed out of all cup competitions and finished ‘irrelevant’, failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League (UCL).메이저사이트
The players’ performances were also disappointing. Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold were a shadow of their former selves, while ‘newcomers’ Cody Gakpo and Darwin Núñez also failed to live up to expectations. Luis Dias’ long-term injury didn’t help matters much.
The biggest problem was in midfield. Fabinho and Jordan Henderson were on the ageing curve, while the likes of Naby Keita and James Milner didn’t help matters much. Youngsters like Curtis Jones and Stefan Bacetić struggled, but it wasn’t enough, and Artur Melo, a late transfer window loan signing, didn’t start a league game.
As a result, Liverpool prioritised ‘midfield reinforcements’ for next season. Originally, Jude Bellingham was a top priority, but he has recently fallen out of favour and the Reds have turned to other sources.
Enter Brighton’s Mac Allister. Brighton’s ‘centre of gravity’ and Argentina’s winningest player at the World Cup in Qatar. Given his prowess on both sides of the ball, many clubs wanted him.
However, a move to Liverpool is imminent. According to Argentine outlet TyC Sports, “McAllister will be the new Liverpool player. After a sensational season, McAllister is going to be a world-class player. There is no official announcement yet, but the deal is already done. McAllister will play for Liverpool from next season. Liverpool will pay close to £70 million to sign McAllister,” we exclusively reported.
His agent and father are expected to fly to England to finalise the deal. European football transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano tweeted on Wednesday (3 March): “McAllister’s father and agent are due to fly to England in the next few hours. Liverpool are hoping to finalise the last details. The deal is expected to be finalised within the next week.”
