Mac Allister’s arrival signifies the start of Jürgen Klopp’s summer rebuild and comes at a substantially lower price than initially reported, costing Liverpool only £35 million.
Mac Allister represents excellent business by the Anfield club, as Klopp had emphasized the importance of bolstering Liverpool’s roster this summer, particularly in the midfield.
The 24-year-old inked a new contract with Brighton before last year’s World Cup, which he won with Argentina. The contract is believed to have an exit clause, which Liverpool has now activated.
He had a great season for Brighton, scoring 10 league goals to propel the Seagulls to sixth place and a berth in the Europa League for next season.
