Liverpool FC Strikes Gold: Kickoff Summer Transfer Window with Sensational Signing
Liverpool FC has confirmed the club's first signing of the summer ahead of the 2023/2024 club football season for manager Jurgen Klopp.
Premier League sides are officially getting busy with player signings for the 2023/2024 club football season as Merseyside giants Liverpool FC, in an official announcement, confirmed the club's first signing for the manager of the men's side, Jurgen Klopp of the summer.
The Reds confirmed the signing of World Cup 2022 winner with Argentina, Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton Hove Albion, on a deal rumoured to be worth over 35 million pounds plus add-ons.
Liverpool's official statement confirmed that:
Liverpool FC has reached an agreement for the transfer of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton & Hove Albion on a long-term deal for an undisclosed fee. The 24-year-old has successfully completed a medical and agreed personal terms to become the Reds’ first signing of the summer window.
Mac Allister will arrive at Anfield less than six months on from helping Argentina win the World Cup in Qatar last December, capping a highly impressive season with Brighton.
Mac Allister opened up on his choice and why he considered a move to Liverpool. The Argentine revealed:
It feels amazing. It’s a dream come true, it’s amazing to be here and I can’t wait to get started. I wanted to be in [from] the first day of pre-season, so it’s good that everything is done. I’m looking forward to meeting my teammates. It was a fantastic year for me – World Cup, what we achieved with Brighton – but now it’s time to think about Liverpool and try to be a better player and a better human being every day.
What Is Mac Allister's Jersey Number At Liverpool?
Alexis Mac Allister would wear the iconic number 10 jersey for Liverpool as he takes on a new challenge in the side.
Jurgen Klopp expressed his excitement about this move in an interview. The talented manager revealed that:
We are adding a very talented, very smart, very technically skilled boy to our squad and this is super news, really it is. I do not think the football world needs me to say too much about Alexis’ qualities because they are already pretty well known but it is clear that he is someone who can play in a number of positions in the midfield and is an all-rounder, I would say. He is calm and composed and someone with proper game intelligence.
This is a huge addition for Liverpool, a club that many would describe had a shaky 2022/2023 premier league campaign as the Reds did not qualify for the UEFA Champions League in a shocking twist of events.
