Everything Mac Allister and ‘talks scheduled’ for next signings – Latest LFC News

Thursday brought the news that the Reds have got their man and it appears that the next signing might not be too far behind.


Mac Allister signs for Liverpool

He’s here, at long last!

Alexis Mac Allister has officially been unveiled as a Liverpool player after completing a move said to be worth around £35 million.

The midfielder became the Reds’ first signing of the summer and has agreed a deal to keep him at the club until June 2028.

It ends weeks of speculation linking the World Cup winner with a switch to Anfield, after reports on Wednesday indicated that the Reds had triggered a release clause to land Mac Allister for what fans described as a “bargain” transfer fee.

Mac Allister worked up an appetite for success by conquering world football with Argentina in Qatar and has insisted “I want to win more trophies” with his new club.
