Alexis Mac Allister could be a Liverpool player as early as this week, with the Times’ Paul Joyce reporting that the Argentine is set to become Jurgen Klopp‘s first signing of the summer.

Joyce indicated that the signing of the World Cup winner could be announced in the coming days, with Liverpool keen to get the deal over the line as they look to prepare for next season.

Mac Allister’s contract is said to feature a release clause, with reported figures ranging from £45 million to £50 million.

The Argentine has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield in recent weeks, with Fabrizio Romano claiming over the weekend that the fee is likely to be “way less” than the £65 million previously claimed.

Romano has since tweeted that the rumoured release clause is even lower than the £45 million to £50 million price range reported elsewhere.
