Transfer news: Mac Allister linked with other EPl’s clubs
Reporters claim that a number of teams are exploring a transfer for Brighton and Argentina playmaker Alexis MacAllister. The midfielder made an impression for the Seagulls throughout the first half of the Premier League season, and because of his strong play, he was selected to represent his nation at the World Cup in Qatar. The 23-year-performances old's have continued throughout the competition. He has started five of Argentina's six games in Qatar; the only game he did not start was the South American team's defeat to Saudi Arabia in their group opener. In their last Group C match against Poland, Mac Allister also managed to score.
His performances have been impressive enough to get admiring looks from top-tier competitors. Tottenham is one of the teams keeping an eye on his performances, according to the Spanish publication Fichajes. Manager Antonio Conte is looking to bolster his midfield with a player who is more creative. Fabio Paratici, the club's managing director, is reportedly prepared to sanction a move for the playmaker from Brighton. However, a number of European teams will compete with the north Londoners for his services. The article claims that Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan, two Italian teams, are admirers of the Argentine. However, the player's numerous suitors may find it challenging to reach an agreement.

Roberto De Zerbi, the manager of Brighton, is unlikely to want to lose one of his standout players. Mac Allister also just made a commitment to the Seagulls for the foreseeable future by signing an extended deal that will keep him with the team until the summer of 2025, with an additional year's option.
The midfielder said in a statement upon the signing of his new deal: “We’ve been discussing a new contract for a few weeks, and I’m very happy it’s all agreed and signed.
“We have made great progress with Graham Potter, and I know there is more to make. I am now enjoying working with another top coach in Roberto De Zerbi and want to help the club to keep progressing.”
In 2020, Boca Juniors' Mac Allister, a 13-time Argentina international, made the switch to Brighton. Later on, he played for the Seagulls in 86 games and scored 13 goals. With five goals in 14 Premier League games this season, he has already had one of the most productive seasons of his English career. Before visiting the AMEX Stadium again later this month, he will be looking to obtain a World Cup winners' medal. Argentina defeated Croatia 3-0 to go to the final in Qatar, where they will play either France or Morocco on Sunday.
