Liverpool ‘frontrunners’ to sign Manchester United target and Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Allister
Premier League rivals Liverpool are the ‘frontrunners’ to sign Manchester United target Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton & Hove Albion, according to Fabrizio Romano on Instagram.
The Anfield side have already presented their proposal to the Argentina international ahead of the upcoming transfer window. Discussions are advancing for the midfielder to join the Merseyside outfit in the coming months.
As things stand, the 24-year-old is expected to part ways with the Seagulls early next summer. While the Red Devils are also interested in him, a lot will depend on the Old Trafford side’s ownership uncertainty.
The Argentine also shone for his national side in the 2022 World Cup. In Qatar, the 24-year-old became a pivotal player for Lionel Scaloni’s team as they beat France to win the title.
Against United in the last few weeks, Mac Allister has showcased his quality. The midfielder was impressive in the FA Cup semi-finals as we won on penalties. On Thursday (4 May), the Argentine scored a penalty in the 99th minute to beat the Red Devils 1-0 in the PL.
Liverpool have been underwhelming this term. They have an ageing engine room and have a lot of players in their ranks who are constantly on the sidelines, like Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
United’s midfield has been dominated by Casemiro and Christian Eriksen in the current campaign. The two have formed an impressive partnership in the midfield pivot positions. Apart from the two, Fred, Scott McTominay and Marcel Sabitzer are in our ranks for now.
