Fabrizio Romano claims move for Brighton star Alexis Mac Allister is 'imminent' amid Liverpool reports

A move for Brighton star Alexis Mac Allister is set to be 'imminent', according to Fabrizio Romano.

Mac Allister has been linked with a move to Liverpool this summer, with Argentinian outlet TyC Sports claiming that the player's father and agent, Carlos, will travel to England this week.

Liverpool are reportedly prepared to offer Mac Allister a contract up until the summer of 2028, although the deal has not been officially completed yet.

That followed comments made by Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi, who publicly stated that both Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo could leave the Amex Stadium this summer.



Speaking after Brighton's 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday, the Italian said (quotes via BBC Sport): "I think that can be the last game of Alexis and Moises, I'm really sorry. They are two great people and two great players.

"The policy of Brighton is like this. I think it's right they can leave, can change teams and play in a level higher. We are ready. We have to find other big players to play without Alexis and Moises."

Mac Allister, a World Cup winner with Argentina in December, broke down in tears after the Villa clash and was consoled by his manager.


Now, Romano has given a key update on the future of the 23-year-old midfielder.

Taking to Twitter, Romano revealed: "Sources expect Alexis Mac Allister to clarify his future by the end of next week with move considered 'imminent'.

"Liverpool are pushing to get deal done as personal terms are almost agreed - final details have to be clarified asap in order to avoid surprises."


Should he join Liverpool, the Argentinian will likely become the first signing of the Jorg Schmadtke era, after the German was appointed as the club's sporting director.

The 59-year-old will work alongside manager Jurgen Klopp in the transfers department, and replaces the outgoing Julian Ward.

In a statement, Liverpool said: "The 59-year-old German will begin his new role on June 1, subject to the successful completion of work permit formalities, and will take over as Liverpool's sporting director from Julian Ward, who will bid farewell this summer after more than a decade at the club."
