In a major development for Liverpool Football Club, Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that the club will be paying for the services of Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Allister. The move has been in the works for some time, and Romano has now confirmed that a full agreement has been completed on the contract.
According to Romano, Liverpool will pay the buy-out clause in the coming days, though the fee is reported to be way less than the previously speculated £60 million. The specifics of the fee have not yet been disclosed.
Mac Allister is a player with immense talent, and he has been on Liverpool’s radar for quite some time. The 22-year-old Argentine midfielder had a great season with Brighton in 2020-21, scoring two goals and providing four assists in 26 Premier League appearances.
The completion of the deal is a major coup for Liverpool, who have been looking to strengthen their midfield options. The addition of Mac Allister will add depth and quality to the squad, and he is expected to play a key role in Liverpool’s bid to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
Medical tests are scheduled to take place within the next 24-48 hours, and are expected to be completed without any issues. The deal will see Mac Allister sign a five-year contract with Liverpool, which will be valid until June 2028.
Liverpool fans will be excited about the prospect of seeing Mac Allister in action next season, as he is considered to be one of the most promising young midfielders in the game. The completion of the deal is a major boost for the club, and could be a sign of things to come as they look to build a squad capable of challenging for major honours in the coming years.
