Liverpool will be hoping to finish their Premier League season on a high when they face already-relegated Southampton on Sunday. 

The Reds missed out on a place in the top four after Manchester United’s 4-1 win over Chelsea on Thursday evening, meaning Jurgen Klopp’s side will compete in the Europa League next term.

The German will undoubtedly be disappointed at his side’s failure to qualify for Europe’s top club competition, but even reaching the Europa League seemed unlikely a few months ago when the Reds sat in ninth place back in February.

Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner will all leave Anfield following their game against Southampton, with the quartet’s contracts all expiring this summer.

With that in mind, it appears that those in charge of the club are looking for potential replacements, and the Reds are now said to be very close to agreeing a huge deal.

As reported by Football Insider, the Merseyside outfit are on the verge of agreeing personal terms with Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Alliseter, with a view to signing the player in the coming weeks.

Mac Allister has reportedly been offered a huge deal by Liverpool

It is claimed that Liverpool have made the Argentine a ‘huge’ offer that would triple his current salary.

Mac Allister, 24, has been in sensational form for the Seagulls this season and played a key role as Argentina lifted the World Cup in Qatar in December.

In total, he has made 39 appearances across all competitions so far this term, as well as featuring in six of Argentina’s seven games at the World Cup.

Liverpool are now said to be confident of reaching an agreement with the midfielder and are hopeful of wrapping up a deal in the coming weeks.

Mac Allister’s contract with his current side is set to run until the summer of 2025, but it appears increasingly likely that the midfielder will depart The Amex during the upcoming transfer window.

At present, the Argentine is said to earn around £50,000-per-week, but Liverpool have reportedly offered him a deal worth more than £150,000-per-week.
