Liverpool Football Club are set to complete the signing of Argentinian midfielder Alexis Mac Allister. According to reports, the 18-year-old has already agreed personal terms with Liverpool and is set to sign a five-year deal that will keep him at the club until June 2028.
Mac Allister, who currently plays for Brighton & Hove Albion, is expected to double his current salary of £50,000 a week on Merseyside. There have even been suggestions that he could earn as much as £150,000 a week, which would put him in line with some of the club’s other high earners.
Assuming the deal goes through as expected, Mac Allister will undergo a medical examination today before being officially unveiled as a Liverpool player subject to international clearance later this week. He will then join up with his new team-mates for pre-season training in July, ahead of what promises to be an exciting season for the club.
Liverpool’s first summer friendly is against Leicester City in Singapore on July 30, with further warm-up matches expected to be confirmed soon. The club will find out their first competitive fixture of the 2023-24 season on Thursday June 15, when the Premier League fixtures are announced at 9am.
Mac Allister’s arrival at Liverpool is sure to be greeted with excitement by the club’s fans. The midfielder is known for his technical ability and his composure on the ball, and he is comfortable playing in a number of positions across midfield. His versatility will no doubt be an asset to Liverpool as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season.
Overall, it looks like an exciting time to be a Liverpool fan, with the club making moves to strengthen their squad ahead of what promises to be a challenging season. Mac Allister’s arrival is just the latest piece in the puzzle, and fans will be eagerly anticipating his contribution to the team.
