Liverpool 'set to complete' Alexis Mac Allister signing with £60m deal '99 per cent done'
| Last updated
Liverpool are set to make Brighton star Alexis Mac Allister their first signing of the summer, according to a new report.
The Reds have been linked with completing a deal to sign Mac Allister for much of the past month, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that they had presented their project and financial proposal to the player and his representatives.
Differing reports have claimed that Liverpool could pay between £60 or £70 million for the midfielder, with Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi stating after the 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa last Sunday that Mac Allister had likely played his final game for the club.
Now, a new update has been released on a potential transfer - as well as the contract that Liverpool have reportedly offered to the midfielder.
Mac Allister 'set to join Liverpool'
According to Football Insider, Mac Allister has now agreed to join Liverpool - meaning the deal could be completed imminently.
It is claimed that personal terms have been finalised, and the Reds will pay a fee of £60 million to bring the Argentinian to Anfield.
According to sources, Mac Allister has been offered a contract of £150,000-per-week to move to the six-time Champions League winners, which is said to be around triple the amount of money he currently earns at Brighton.
The deal would represent Liverpool's first transfer of what is expected to a busy summer, with four players already released and Arthur Melo returning to parent club Juventus.
With speculation over the futures of Kostas Tsimikas and Caoimhin Kelleher, there could be even more business done than anticipated.
But Liverpool's priority is in bolstering their midfield - and the addition of Mac Allister will go a long way to achieving that goal.
