Liverpool ‘very close’ to agreeing stunning £80 million deal for midfielder – Reports

Liverpool are reportedly very close to agreeing a deal with Brighton & Hove Albion to sign Alexis Mac Allister. The Reds are ready to offer around £80 million for the Argentine in the summer.

As per a report by German Garcia Grova, Liverpool are pushing to agree a deal with Brighton. The Argentine is ready to join the Reds and is keen on working with Jurgen Klopp.

The report adds that the personal terms are also being sorted behind the scenes. The Argentine will pen a 5.5 year deal, keeping him at the club until December 2028 should a transfer take place.

Mac Allister’s father has already confirmed that there are several clubs interested in his son. He told ESPN:

“Clubs are starting to call us for Alexis but there are no concrete talks now. We’ll decide together with Brighton, they deserve respect. We will pick the best project, based on the coach too — it’s not about money.”

Chelsea were also linked with the Argentine, while Manchester United and PSG were also said to be interested in the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner.

Liverpool moving for alternatives after pulling out of Jude Bellingham race

Liverpool were keen on signing Jude Bellingham but pulled out of the race last month. They deemed the price to be too high for the Reds this summer and decided to make moves for alternates.

Klopp revealed that he was not angry with the owners over the decision and said via The Guardian:

“I am not angry [with the owners]. I don’t agree with everything we do but I am employed here and I am not here to be angry about things that will work out or not work out. If I am angry, we won’t all of a sudden have more money and resources to do everything. The way we did things in the past is the way we will do it in the future – that’s the way.”

The Liverpool manager added:

“I cannot change that; nobody could change that. We were pretty successful with that. That we didn’t win the four trophies last year, had nothing to do with the transfer market, that we didn’t sign enough players. Maybe some people would think if we signed certain players, we’d have a point more.”

Jude Bellingham is now reportedly (via MARCA) set to join Real Madrid in a deal over 100 million euros.


Liverpool closer, prepared to agree£35million signing–Journalist

Liverpool must act fast to reinforce their midfield before the start of the pre-season so that Klopp can gel the squad well for the next campaign.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Reds are seriously interested in signing Gabri Veiga from Celta Vigo.

News – Report – Teammates know £70m star is set to sign for Liverpool

According to Manu Sainz, who works for Spanish media outlet, AS, the 20-year-old attack minded midfielder is much closer to moving to Liverpool than Real Madrid.

As per the renowned journalist, the youngster has a release clause of £35million and the Merseysiders are even prepared to activate it to get the signing done.

Sainz stated:

“I see him closer to Liverpool, for example, a club that has been following him for a long time.

Newcastle is a club that were the first to travel to Vigo to monitor him and you know they are willing to pay the €40m (£35million) of his release clause. Liverpool are as well. Now the ball is in Veiga’s court. He is going to decide which option he wants”

The Spanish under-21 boy has excelled for Celta Vigo in the current campaign. He is a flexible talent, who can play in central/attacking midfield.

This season, so far, the versatile starlet has started 23 games in the league for the Spanish side and directly contributed in 13 goals (9 goals and 4 assists).

Liverpool need at least two-three midfielders and have to use the transfer kitty smartly to adequately reinforce the department.

Should they pay £35million to sign Gabri Veiga?
