Alexis Mac Allister’s father drops summer transfer hint amid Arsenal and Chelsea links

Alexis Mac Allister was the subject of much transfer speculation in January.

The Argentine had a bright start to the 2022/23 campaign, which saw him score five Premier League goals for Brighton despite being used as a defensive midfielder.

He then linked up with Argentina for the 2022 World Cup, where he played a crucial role in his country lifting the title.

Mac Allister featured in all of Argentina’s games in Qatar, barring the opener, and scored one and assisted one, with the assist coming in the final.

This saw the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea show interest in the midfielder, but no move came to pass.

Now though, Mac Allister’s father has suggested that a summer move is still on the cards.

Speaking to TyC Sports, Carlos Mac Allister said: “For now, he is at Brighton. It seems to me a very good thing that he has returned from the World Cup and has not despaired about leaving, enjoying success calmly and in peace, in a team that loves him very much.

“The reception he received has been the best. He is very well in the club. We all know that in July there will be possibilities to be able to leave. But prior to the World Cup, Alexis renewed his contract so that the club also has the opportunity of an important transfer, so that a lot can reach Brighton. It is the idea.”
