Liverpool have today 8th June, 2023 completed a £55m deal to sign midfielder Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton on a five-year contract.
The Argentina playmaker was a central figure as Brighton finished sixth in the Premier League last term to qualify for Europe for the first time.
The 24-year-old made 112 appearances in total for the Seagulls, scoring 20 goals.
“It feels amazing. It’s a dream come true and I can’t wait to get started,” said Mac Allister.
“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 team-mates.
“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
Mac Allister is the seventh Argentinian to represent Liverpool.
He added: “Since I won the World Cup, I said that I want to win more trophies and I think that this club will help me to do that – that’s the aim and when you are in a big club like this one you have to win trophies. So, that’s what I want.
“Since I arrived here, I can see how big this club is – the players we have, the staff, everyone. I’m really pleased and looking forward to playing for this club.”
