Seagulls permission for medical Examination
As the Premier league season came to end, Brighton ended the season placing on the sixth position of the points table. On this point Alexis Mac Allister moves to Liverpool from Brighton is set to make a 55 euros million to Liverpool after the seagulls gave permission for the midfielder to have a medical.
The midfielder being 24 years old, helped his country to win the world cup in December. Liverpool need to add to their midfield with James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade- Chamberlain leaving this summer.
They were priced out of a move for Borussia Dortmund’s England teenager jude Bellingham, Who is a target for Real madrid club.
Mac Allister played a important part as the seagulls secured European football for the First time in the 122-year history. He had made 40 appearences and scores 12 goals, most in a number 10 role but also at times in midfielder positions.
Brighton manager Roberto de Zerbi last month said Mac Allister was a great player who deserved to play at a higher level. Mac Allister joined Brighton from Argentinos juniors in January 2019 and immediately went back to Buenos aires club on loan.
Alex Mac Allister career over his Journey
He played his first match for the Seagulls in a goalless draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers in March 2020 and has since made 112 appearances for the club, scoring 20 goals.
Mac Allister has been capped 16 times by Argentina and played in six games of their 2022 World Cup-winning campaign in Qatar, scoring in a 2-0 win against Poland in the group stages.
Mac Allister joined Brighton from Argentinos Juniors in January 2019 but spent the rest of that season with the Argentinian club, before spending the first half of the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Boca Juniors.
Mac Allister finally moved to the Amex in January 2020 and went on to play 112 times for Brighton, scoring 20 goals and claiming nine assists.
He enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2022/23, scoring 12 goals in all competitions as he became a key part of Roberto De Zerbi’s impressive team. Even Brighton had a big victory over the Wolves in the premier league with 6-0. It was one of the biggest victory in the brighton history.
Mac Allister also established himself in Argentina’s midfield during the World Cup in November and December, starting six games – including the final – as Lionel Scaloni’s team won the tournament in Qatar.
Liverpool’s midfield has been scrutinised for some time, seen as the root cause of their decline. Overhauling it offers a route out of their problems. The acquisition of Mac Allister could prove to be a significant moment for Jurgen Klopp.
The Argentina international has pedigree. Already a World Cup winner, the 24-year-old midfielder has proven himself in the Premier League at Brighton and has the breadth of skills that make him an ideal fit for the demands at Liverpool.
It is why Jude Bellingham was long seen as the solution. At its best, a Klopp midfield includes players who can defend and attack, tackle, pass and shoot. Mac Allister can do all of that. Speaking to him in January, he was acutely aware of his own positional flexibility.
Alex Mac Allister on an interview
“I always say that I like to be in contact with the ball,” he told in a interview. “The closer I am to the ball, the better I feel. I like to play as a midfielder. It does not matter if it is as a 6, an 8 or a 10. I grew up as a 10. But then I understood that I could play in more positions.
“I think it is important for the modern player to be able to play in different positions to give the team and the manager different options. If you ask me I would say that today I feel more comfortable as an 8 but I know I can play as a 6 or a 10.”
