According to ESPN, Brighton midfielder Alexis MacAllister is getting closer to a move to Liverpool after being granted permission to undergo a medical.
Liverpool wants to sign the 24-year-old before he joins Argentina for their June 15 friendly against Australia in China.
According to insiders, Liverpool and Brighton have held positive talks, and Mac Allister is poised to be Liverpool’s first major signing of the summer transfer season.
Following the exits of Naby Keita, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at the end of their Anfield contracts, Liverpool has made the signing of at least two midfielders a priority this summer.
According to sources, Liverpool is also interested in Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes, Nice’s Khephren Thuram, and Borussia Monchengladbach’s Manu Kone.
