Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino enjoyed a remarkable final game for the club as he scored in a 4-4 draw against Southampton on Sunday. 

The Reds were held to a draw by the Saints, who finished bottom of the Premier League table, but Firmino marked his final appearance with his 111th goal for the club.

Firmino is one of four stars – along with Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner – who will depart the club when their contracts expire next month.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will undoubtedly be hoping to bolster his squad ahead of next term, and it appears that the Merseyside outfit could be closing in on their first summer signing.

As per 90min, the Reds are confident of signing Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Allister.

The Argentine has been in fantastic form for the Seagulls over the past 12 months, and also helped his country to lift the World Cup back in December.

Mac Allister looks likely to join Liverpool this summer

The midfielder’s performances haven’t gone unnoticed, though, and it appears that he could join Liverpool during the upcoming window.

In total, Mac Allister has made 112 appearances for Brighton across all competitions, including 40 this season.

Manager Roberto De Zerbi recently admitted that the player has likely played his final match for the club, although the 24-year-old isn’t likely to come cheap.

The report claims that Liverpool could pay around £70 million to land Mac Allister, who joined Brighton from his homeland in 2019.

The Argentina international has attracted interest from other big clubs including Manchester United and Chelsea, and the player’s representatives have reportedly been in talks over his future for a number of weeks.

Despite that, the Merseyside outfit are said to be close to finalising an agreement for the midfielder.

Liverpool are set to be in the market for at least one central midfielder with Keita, Milner and Oxlade-Chamberlain all leaving the club.
