Alexis Mac Allister may refuse to join Liverpool this summer if one 'demand' isn't met

Brighton star Alexis Mac Allister may not join Liverpool this summer if one of his transfer 'demands' isn't met, according to a new report.

The 24-year-old midfielder has been linked with a move to Anfield over the past month, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that Liverpool have submitted their project and financial proposal to the player and his representatives.

Mac Allister, a World Cup winner with Argentina in December, has been one of Brighton's key players this summer in the club's pursuit of European football.

But manager Roberto De Zerbi has stated that the midfielder could leave the Amex Stadium this summer.


Speaking after Brighton's 3-0 win over Arsenal, the Italian told Sky Sports: "For sure we will lose some players, maybe Caicedo and Mac Allister."


And the Daily Mirror claim that Liverpool are readying a £70 million deal to secure Mac Allister's signature, with veteran Reds midfielder James Milner going the other way on a free transfer.

However, the Argentinian may not move to Anfield at all.


Mac Allister transfer 'demand' revealed

According to The Athletic, Mac Allister wants to play Champions League football if he does leave Brighton this summer.

That may come as a major blow to Liverpool if they cannot finish in the top four of the Premier League, with Jurgen Klopp's side currently in fifth place.

They could be pipped to the post by Mac Allister's current side. Brighton are four points behind Liverpool in sixth with a game in hand, and take on third-placed Newcastle on Wednesday.


Manchester United are also linked with a move, and could sign the Argentinian ahead of their fierce rivals if Erik ten Hag's side finish in the top four ahead of them.

The Athletic also report that the final standings will have a 'significant bearing' on the player's future.

And Brighton remain hopeful of keeping the 24-year-old at the Amex Stadium if they qualify for Europa League football for the first time in the club's history - and will hope that is enough to stave off interest from United and Liverpool.
