Liverpool continue to be linked with a move for Argentine international midfielder and World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister.
Alexis Mac Allister has been a key player for Brighton & Hove Albion and he helped his country win the World Cup in December as well. According to journalist Cesar Luis Merlo, Liverpool are now in advanced talks to sign the World Cup winner, and they have offered him a five-year contract.
Mac Allister has established himself as one of the most promising midfielders in the Premier League, and he has emerged as a top target for Liverpool. The Reds are in desperate need of midfield reinforcements, and they must look to bring in a technically gifted central midfielder who will help them control the proceedings in the middle of the park.
Mac Allister will add creativity and goals to the side as well. The Brighton star has the skill set to adapt to Jurgen Klopp’s high-intensity pressing system, and he is well-settled in the Premier League. He could make an immediate impact at Anfield next season.
Liverpool are set to lose players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Naby Keita in the summer. So they will have to bring in adequate replacements. Mac Allister could prove to be a solid investment for Liverpool.

The Reds have had a disappointing campaign so far, and the midfield has been a major concern for them. Signing a quality central midfielder should be a top priority for Liverpool in the summer. But it remains to be seen whether they can get a deal done for the Argentine international.
Mac Allister has already proven himself at Brighton, and he will be hoping to test himself at a higher level. A move to Liverpool is likely to be an attractive option for the player. However, Liverpool are expected to miss out on Champions League football next season. With that in mind, it will be interesting to see if the Argentine is prepared to join a club outside of the top four.

Mac Allister will hope to compete at the highest level, and Liverpool certainly have the quality to compete for major trophies. However, they will not be able to offer Champions League football next season barring a late miracle.
