Liverpool have agreed to pay the release clause for Brighton star Alexis Mac Allister.

According to Football Insider, Premier League giants Liverpool are set to pay the release clause of Brighton & Hove Albion star Alexis Mac Allister in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The Argentine World Cup winner is coming off an unforgettable season for both club and country. He was part of the Argentine side that triumphed in Qatar and also helped Brighton achieve European football for the first time ever.

An energetic presence who can carry the ball forward and also score goals, Mac Allister’s ability and presence are exactly what is lacking in the current Liverpool roster. Having lost Naby Keita, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Bosman deals, Jurgen Klopp can do with a player of Mac Allister’s talents.

A move to Anfield is edging closer as Liverpool have decided to meet a price of between £55-60 million to land the 24-year-old. The South American ace is also in line for a bumper pay cheque that will net him over £150,000-a-week in wages.

The end of season’s lap of honour at the Amex more or less confirmed that Mac Allister is on his way out. Roberto De Zerbi also admitted to the same regarding one of Brighton’s favourite sons.

If everything goes as expected, the 24-year-old will line up for the Reds at Anfield next season. Jurgen Klopp is laying the foundations for his next great Liverpool side and Mac Allister could be one of the key cogs for the German.

The Merseysiders are also linked with Khephren Thuram and Manu Kone. The French duo will add much-needed physicality into the midfield and offer Klopp legs he can work with. This is especially true if Liverpool go with a three-man defence next season.

Trent Alexander-Arnold can function as a sweeper ahead of the back three, doubling up as a quarterback, and spraying balls up the field. He is likely to be protected by the duo of Thuram and Kone who are akin to his offensive line while also progressing the ball themselves. This frees up Mac Allister to don the number ten’s role higher upfield.

As such, signing Mac Allister would be a good move for Liverpool. But they will need more and cannot afford to call it day once the Argentine is in through the door. Should the Reds get all three of their midfield targets, it could very well change the dimension of their fortunes next season.
