Mac Allister joins Liverpool for £35 million

Argentine world cup winner Alexis Mac Allister of Brighton has joined European giants Liverpool for a reported fee of £35 million.

After a very disappointing season, it was obvious that the Reds would go to the market to get their midfield reinforced.

Mac Allister has been on the radar of Liverpool for a while now as he is seen to be the ideal player Klopp would love to have.

“It feels amazing. It’s a dream come true, it’s amazing to be here and I can’t wait to get started. I wanted to be in [from] the first day of pre-season, so it’s good that everything is done. I’m looking forward to meeting my teammates. “It was a fantastic year for me – World Cup, what we achieved with Brighton – but now it’s time to think about Liverpool and try to be a better player and a better human being every day.”

“Since I won the World Cup, I said that I want to win more trophies and I think that this club will help me to do that – that’s the aim and when you are in a big club like this one you have to win trophies. So, that’s what I want. Since I arrived here, I can see how big this club is – the players we have, the staff, everyone. I’m really pleased and looking forward to playing for this club.”

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp also had these things to say concerning the Mac Allister’s addition to the squad.

“We are adding a very talented, very smart, very technically skilled boy to our squad and this is super news, really it is. I do not think the football world needs me to say too much about Alexis’ qualities because they are already pretty well known but it is clear that he is someone who can play in a number of positions in the midfield and is an all-rounder, I would say. He is calm and composed and someone with proper game intelligence.”
