Liverpool Reportedly Complete Signing of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton and Hove Albion.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has taken to Twitter to announce that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have successfully secured the signature of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton and Hove Albion. Romano revealed that the two clubs have reached a full agreement on the transfer of the midfielder, and that Mac Allister will reportedly undergo a medical examination in the next 24 to 48 hours before officially signing a five-year contract with Liverpool.
Romano stated that Liverpool will pay the buyout clause for the 24-year-old, which is significantly less than the previously reported £60 million fee.
The arrival of Mac Allister will add more depth to Liverpool’s already impressive midfield lineup, which includes the likes of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, and Georginio Wijnaldum.
Liverpool’s acquisition of Mac Allister forms part of Klopp’s strategy to enhance the team’s existing squad, which they hope can continue to challenge for domestic and European silverware.
The news of this transfer comes as Liverpool prepare to defend their Premier League title next season, having finished third in the 2021 campaign. Klopp’s men secured a spot in the UEFA Champions League as well, making it to the quarterfinals before getting knocked out by Real Madrid.
As for Brighton and Hove Albion, the sale of Mac Allister allows them to free up space on their wage bill while receiving a significant transfer fee. Brighton also hope to reinvest the funds in their transfers and player recruitment.
Overall, Mac Allister’s move to Liverpool has generated significant interest, and supporters are excited to see how he will integrate into the team’s style of play under Klopp’s tutelage.
