24-year-old has just said goodbye to his teammates, after being linked with Liverpool move

Alexis Mac Allister has said goodbye to his Brighton teammates as he closes in on a move to Liverpool.

The Argentina international looks set to complete a transfer to the Reds today, ending a three-and-a-half year stay on the South Coast.

And according to Brighton based journalist Andy Naylor, Mac Allister has now bid his colleagues at the Amex Stadium adieu.

“Chairman Tony Bloom joined Brighton players and staff on a trip to Las Vegas last week, which included final goodbyes to Liverpool-bound Alexis Mac Allister,” Naylor wrote on Twitter this morning.

“Several young players skipped the end of season celebration. You have to be at least 21 to gamble in Nevada.”

Mac Allister finally lands in Liverpool
Mac Allister has certainly had a busy last couple of weeks. It was just ten days ago that he played for Brighton for the final time.

Since then, he’s reportedly been in Italy for the wedding of Lautaro Martinez, holidaying in Miami, saying goodbye to teammates in Vegas, and is now in Liverpool ahead of signing for the Reds today.

After that, the 24-year-old’s travels will continue, as he joins up with his international colleagues in Argentina.

Then, finally, Mac Allister should be afforded a little break before he commences life with Liverpool in the second week of July.

Of course, it’ll be a busy time in-between as he moves his life from Brighton’s South Coast, to the North West of Merseyside.

Thankfully, Liverpool have a few players who should be able to help him with all of that. They’re a friendly bunch this Reds squad, and they’ve got plenty of South American, as well as Spanish and Portuguese lads to help Alexis settle in.

By all accounts, the World Cup winner was an incredibly popular member of the Brighton squad, as well as with the fanbase. At Liverpool, he’ll come into a close, family environment who tend to welcome new arrivals with gusto. As one door closes, another opens. Welcome to the best club in the world, Alexis.
