LFC’s “Bargain” Transfer Deal for Alexis Mac Allister on the Horizon
LFC Transfer Scoop: Is £65 million Claim Far from Reality?
Reports around Liverpool’s possible signing of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton have been rippling through the news, sparking intrigue among Reds fans worldwide. However, there’s a twist in the tale – the touted £65 million transfer fee might actually be a fair bit off the mark.
Fabrizio Romano, took to Twitter recently to disclose that Mac Allister’s release clause is “not that high.” Consequently, LFC might secure this promising talent for a fee much less hefty than originally claimed. The rumour mill is buzzing with figures as low as £45 million, although there’s no official substantiation on that yet.
Mac Allister to Liverpool will cost way less than £65/70m, as said yesterday. Fixed amount to sign him from Brighton is not that high. 🔴🇦🇷 #LFC
The plan is to complete the deal next week ⤵️⏳ https://t.co/OUT6SDdHI7

Mac Allister’s Agent Set to Arrive in England
In related Twitter updates, Romano also conveyed that Carlos Mac Allister, Alexis’ father and agent, is slated to fly into England this coming Saturday. His arrival is seen as the key to finalising the ongoing negotiations between the two clubs.
Premature announcements from Argentina suggested that Mac Allister’s transfer to Liverpool was a done deal, with a speculated price tag of at least £60 million. It appears these may have been somewhat hasty, with Carlos’ impending visit likely to paint a clearer picture.
It’s Close, but Where Will Alexis Mac Allister Play?
Luciano Guaycochea, Mac Allister’s cousin, shared some insight in an interview with Malaysian outlet, Stadium Astro, saying, “I cannot say where he’s going to play, but I think everyone knows it’s close, to Liverpool.” He continued, “It’s a big team. But everywhere he goes, I hope he can play well.”
Guaycochea’s remarks should perhaps be savoured with a pinch of salt. However, hopes remain high that talks between LFC and Mac Allister will reach a successful conclusion soon.
First of Many Midfield Signings for Liverpool?
If all goes to plan, the 24-year-old World Cup winner is tipped to be the first signing of the summer for Liverpool. Reds fans can also anticipate more exciting additions in the midfield as the transfer window unfolds.
