Mac Allister looking for a way out of Brighton this summer
Mac Allister moved to Brighton from Argentinos Juniors in January 2019 for about €8 million (£6.9 million). Since then, he has made 95 appearances in all competitions, making 16 goals and contributing seven assists.
The midfielder has a deal with the Amex that runs through June 2025, and earlier this year he stated that he is “not in a haste” to leave the team.
“I feel really good with this club and my teammates, and everyone who works here,”
Mac Allister told BBC Radio Sussex.
“I try not to read too much. I always say I am really happy here and I don’t have any rush to leave. I am focused on the next game with this club.”
The midfielder will have “chances” to leave Brighton this summer, according to Mac Allister’s agent and father.
“For now he is in Brighton. It seems to me a very good thing that he has returned from the World Cup and has not despaired of leaving,”
Carlos Mac Allister told TyCSports.
“He is enjoying success calmly and in peace in a team that loves him very much. The reception he received has been for the better. He is very happy at the club.
“We all know that in July there will be chances to leave. But prior to the World Cup, Alexis renewed his contract so that the club also has the opportunity to make a big sale, so that many can reach out to Brighton. That’s the idea.”
Moises Caicedo, a colleague of Mac Allister’s at Brighton, has also been mentioned in connection with a high-profile transfer this summer despite just last week’s signing of a new contract that runs through 2027.
