Liverpool have reportedly made Alexis Mac Allister their top transfer target heading into the summer, with the Reds currently working on trying to sign the Brighton & Hove Albion star.
According to the Athletic, the Argentine international is Liverpool’s priority as Jurgen Klopp looks to bring in as many as three midfielders to bulk out his squad’s options, with Mac Allister the player Liverpool want to bring in first after weeks of links and rumours.
Earning a reported £50,000-a-week, Mac Allister has been one of the best midfielders in the Premier League this season as the South American guided Brighton to an incredible sixth-place finish, with Liverpool now set to sign the 24-year-old as their first signing of the summer.
With Naby Keita, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all leaving Liverpool, Klopp is keen to replace the midfield trio with new signings as quickly as possible, and Mac Allister could fit the bill perfectly for what the German manager wants in the market.
Indeed, the 24-year-old will bring much-needed creativity and attacking intent to Liverpool’s midfield. And with Mac Allister now the club’s main transfer priority, movement on a deal could now happen fast as the Reds look to secure the South American’s signature.
Liverpool signing Mac Allister soon could be a huge confidence booster
Liverpool’s rebuild this summer will be one of the most interesting in all of European football. And getting off to a fast start with the signing of Mac Allister could be a huge confidence booster for the entire club as well as for the supporters, who have high expectations.
The 24-year-old has proven himself to be an incredible midfielder in the Premier League, and for Liverpool, Mac Allister has all the tools needed to take Klopp’s side back to the top, with the Argentine himself keen on a move to Anfield in the coming weeks.
