Three English Premier League (PL) teams competed in a scouting match.
The British media’Guardian’ said on the 14th (Korean time), “Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea are jumping into the summer transfer market in the scouting of Alexis McAllister (24, Brighton and Hove Albion). McAllister will leave the team once the transfer fee is met.”
The World Cup was the starting point. McAllister represented Argentina at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. As the main midfielder, he played a significant role in helping Argentina win the World Cup for the first time in 60 years. Lionel Messi (35, Paris Saint-Germain), who relieved the burden of defense, played a big role in the attacking line and held the first World Cup trophy in his arms.
He is a versatile midfielder. McAllister was known for his excellent kicks and creative passing. His activity is also excellent, and he played a key role in Brighton’s midfield. His scoring ability is also excellent. He is the top scorer for Brighton with 10 goals this season, along with striker Kaoru Mitoma (25). Participation time is 5th overall. Brighton, his team, is making a splash with 46 points from 28 games and 7th place.
It is a hot potato in the transfer market. McAllister’s father, Carlos McAllister, said in an interview with local media, “McAllister’s new team will be decided in the next transfer window. Negotiations have just begun. Maybe in July, I won’t play for another team.” 메이저사이트
Big clubs are already working quickly behind the scenes. According to The Guardian, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool are closely monitoring McAllister’s situation. Brighton are setting a reasonable transfer fee for McAllister. The contract runs through June 2025. He signed a new contract a few weeks before the World Cup.
The ransom price skyrocketed. When he joined Brighton in 2019, McAllister’s transfer fee was 8 million euros (11.5 billion won). According to ‘Transfermarkt’, McAllister’s current estimated transfer fee is around 42 million euros (60.5 billion won). With three big clubs with abundant financial power jumping into the scouting battle, the actual transfer fee is expected to rise further.
