Liverpool have reportedly activated the transfer option in Alexis MacAllister’s contract at Brighton, completing the purchase of the Argentine midfielder.
The contracts of James Milner, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Arthur Melo have all expired at the Merseyside club. To overhaul the midfield, the Reds are anticipated to sign at least three players. And it’s no surprise that Jurgen Klopp was interested in signing Mac Allister, one of the greatest midfielders in the Premier League last season.
The 24-year-old has already passed a medical examination, the report adds.
Mac Allister’s pay will increase from £50,000 to £150,000 per week. A five-year agreement that lasts through 2028 will be signed.
Transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano confirmed that the Reds secured the services of the Argentine for just £35 million which has been termed as a ‘steal’ by numerous sports publications.
Romano tweeted: “Liverpool have just signed Alexis Mac Allister for… £35m.”
“The Reds have triggered the clause to sign the midfielder. The final documents are currently in the process of being signed.
