Liverpool ‘present project’ to World Cup winner as talks advance for summer deal
Liverpool's charm offensive to lure Alexis Mac Allister to Anfield has begun with the club aiming to snap him up as early as next month.
The Reds have 'presented their project' to the Brighton midfielder, who played a starring role in Argentina's World Cup triumph last year, and have told him what they're willing to pay him. An agreement is yet to be reached, but according to Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, "discussions are advancing".
Mac Allister has two years left on his contract at the Amex but the south coast club are resigned to losing him this summer given the amount of wealthy clubs circling, also including Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp is desperate to reinforce his creaking midfield and with Liverpool now firmly out of the race to sign Jude Bellingham, a move for Mac Allister has become the club's priority.
The 24-year-old has been in stunning form this season, netting 10 goals in 33 matches in all competitions to help fire the Seagulls to what's set to be their highest domestic finish in the club's history.
James Milner's impending move to Brighton may help sweeten a potential deal, and if and when it's finalised Liverpool will turn their attention to other midfield targets, with the likes of Chelsea's Mason Mount, Sporting's Manuel Ugarte and Wolves' Matheus Nunes high on their shopping list.
Where will Mac Allister be playing football next season? Let us know in the comments section below.
Mac Allister joined Brighton from Argentinos Juniors in 2019, and quickly became a vital first team star after initially being loaned back to his homeland for a few months.
He made his Argentina debut in 2019, but didn't play again for the side until just before the 2022 World Cup. During the tournament he featured in all but one of Argentina's matches – their only defeat, against Saudi Arabia.
He scored his first international against Poland a few days later and set up Angel Di Maria for his side's second goal in the final against France.
