Argentinean flying to Liverpool to seal ‘very advanced’ Reds move
According to reports in Argentina, LIVERPOOL are nearing a deal to sign Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister.
There are still a few weeks left of the season to play out and Liverpool are still hoping to get back into those Champions League places in a bid to save their season.
But the transfer window will give Liverpool the chance to sign a few players that will freshen up the side, and Mac Allister is a man that is on the shopping list of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.
Now his father and agent said to have booked his flight to England next week to ‘accelerate and close’ the Anfield switch.
LIVERPOOL are believed to have agreed personal terms over a contract until 2028 with Mac Allister, but they are yet to enter formal negotiations with Brighton, who are set to demand £70m for the World Cup-winning playmaker.

Amid all the speculation – Jose Enrique believes Alexis Mac Allister can come in and help LIVERPOOL star Trent Alexander-Arnold move back into his old role.
Speaking to SafeBettingSites: “I don’t understand why people are so obsessed with Trent in this position though. Arteta has done it with Oleksandr Zinchenko the whole season, Pep has done it with Cancelo before he went to Bayern Munich.
‘John Stones has also played as a midfielder coming in from his right back or centre back role.
“I like Trent there in that role when we have the ball because right now we don’t have a midfielder that can distribute the ball like Trent can. Alexis Mac Allister can do that if he comes here because he has that quality.
‘I think Trent and Kevin De Bruyne are the best right-footed players in the league and top two in the world.
“I like his role, but at the end of the day he is a right back. He has been the best for two or three years in that role. I like the vision he has but his position is a right back.’”
