Liverpool now leading race to sign ‘incredible’ World Cup-winning midfielder
According to reports, Liverpool, Juventus, and Manchester City are all in the running to sign Alexis MacAllister this summer.
This update was provided by Football Insider in response to rumors that the player’s agent, who is also his father, was present at Anfield (as was initially reported by Football Transfers in February).
Given the uncertainty surrounding Bernardo Silva’s future at the Etihad and the fact that Ilkay Gundogan has yet to receive a contract extension, a move by the Sky Blues for the rumored Reds target would not be entirely unexpected.
Certainly, if we do manage to successfully lure Jude Bellingham to Anfield, Pep Guardiola’s outfit will be forced to cast their gaze elsewhere.
Having won the World Cup in the winter and been a key part of Brighton’s charge for European football, the 24-year-old’s stock is at its absolute highest – which will be great news for the Seagulls with two years remaining on his contract.
As such, it might be the perfect time for Brighton and Hove Albion to capitalise on their ‘incredible’ (as previously described by ex-boss Graham Potter to the BBC) player’s value before they run into similar issues being experienced by Chelsea with Mason Mount amid, again, reported Liverpool interest.
