Argentine reporter Germán García Grova has indicated that Alexis Mac Allister is “one step away” from joining Liverpool, with talks over the final details of a deal set to take place this week.

The journalist tweeted that the 24-year-old’s agent and father Carlos will travel to England to “go over the last details” of an agreement to bring the World Cup winner to Anfield.

Football Insider had reported earlier in the day that Mac Allister has agreed a deal to sign for the Reds this summer, with a fee worth around £60 million soon to be finalised.

It comes after the midfielder teared up while acknowledging supporters following Brighton‘s final game of the season, prompting many to conclude that his departure from the AMEX is imminent.

If reports are to be believed, the deal could be announced in early June as Liverpool plan a summer rebuild of the midfield to help the side challenge again next season.
