The Liverpool-connected journalist has confirmed that talks for the Argentinian World Cup winner are ongoing between the club and Brighton. Liverpool will activate a release clause in the player’s contract. The exact figure is still unknown, likely ranging from £45 million to £55 million.
The clause was likely inserted in October when Mac Allister extended his contract. He would have been available for free this summer otherwise, which explains why Brighton relented to one even though they do not usually do release clauses.
Joyce also noted that Liverpool pipped Manchester United to the signing, with the player preferring Liverpool and keen to work with Jürgen Klopp. He also mentions Nice’s Khéphren Thuram and Romeo Lavia of Southampton as potential signings the club will explore after completing this deal.
