Liverpool have announced the signing of Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, who signs a contract with the Reds through to 2028.
The 2022 World Cup winner joined the Seagulls back in 2019 but enjoyed a breakout season this term, scoring 12 goals and laying on three assists in 40 appearances as Brighton landed a maiden European spot.

Mac Allister became one of the most sought-after names in his position – having also starred in Argentina’s triumphant run in Qatar – with Liverpool successfully fending off competition to land the 24-year-old in a reported £35 million ($44m) deal.
Mac Allister has told the Reds’ official website: “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.”
Mac Allister will be taking the No.10 shirt at Anfield – joins the Reds after they agreed to trigger the player’s buyout clause, as medicals were successfully completed on Tuesday.
