The latest update from TyC Sports suggests that an agreement has been reached, although it is not yet official. Mac Allister is expected to play under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool in the upcoming season, with the reported transfer fee being close to £70 million.
Liverpool signed Mac Allister ahead of Chelsea, who were also interested in signing the gifted midfielder.
Mac Allister has been a star performer for Brighton this season, considerably contributing to the team’s success. He also played an important role in Argentina’s World Cup victory in Qatar.
With the departures of James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keita this summer, Liverpool is looking to bolster its midfield. The signing of Mac Allister might signal the start of a hectic transfer window for the Reds as they aim to bolster their team for the forthcoming season.
