Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Allister on Manchester United radar

Manchester United are ‘keeping tabs’ on Alexis Mac Allister, who plays for Premier League rivals Brighton & Hove Albion, according to journalist Cesar Luis Merlo on Twitter (h/t ESPN).

A number of English top-flight sides are keen on acquiring the midfielder’s services ahead of the upcoming transfer window. The Argentina international entourage is already in England monitoring the situation.

In January, the 24-year-old was linked with a move away from the Seagulls. Next summer, speculations will once again surround his future at the Amex Stadium side.

Apart from the Red Devils, table-toppers Arsenal and Liverpool also have Mac Allister on their radar. Two clubs have already made contact with the East Sussex-based club for the Argentine.

The 24-year-old signed for Brighton in the winter window of 2019. Since then, the midfielder has developed into one of the best players in the PL. He has made 28 appearances in all competitions for the Amex Stadium side this term, scoring 10 goals and providing two assists.

Last year, Mac Allister also played a key role in Argentina’s 2022 World Cup triumph. The 24-year-old started in the final against France and provided an assist for Lionel Scaloni’s team’s second goal.

United added Christian Eriksen and Casemiro to their midfield ranks in the summer of 2022. The two have been impressive this season. However, they are both 31 years of age.

On the bench, Fred, Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek have failed to live up to the expectations over the years. Therefore, we could evidently do with more youth in the middle of the park.

Mac Allister has continued to perform at a high level since the prestigious tournament in Qatar. Therefore, it remains to be seen what Brighton will demand to part ways with the Argentine.
