Liverpool prevented Arsenal from moving eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table by holding The Gunners to a 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday. 

Mikel Arteta’s side had raced into a 2-0 lead early on, before Mohamed Salah pulled one back for The Reds shortly before half-time.

Both sides had several chances in the second half before substitute Roberto Firmino grabbed a late equaliser to ensure the points were shared.

Now, Liverpool look to have turned their attention to the upcoming summer transfer window.

According to Football Insider, The Reds are preparing an offer for Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Allister.

The report claims that Brighton are aware of significant interest in the Argentina international from clubs including Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United.

The Seagulls will reportedly be ‘blown out of the water’ by the other interested clubs when it comes to offering Mac Allister personal terms.

Mac Allister, 24, joined Brighton in 2019 but didn’t make his debut for the club until the following year.

Mac Allister could be on his way out of Brighton this summer

He has now made more than 100 appearances for the south coast club, scoring 18 goals and providing eight assists.

In December, the midfielder was part of the Argentina side that lifted the World Cup, beating France on penalties in the final.

His performances in Qatar undoubtedly increased interest in him, although the midfielder does have more than two years remaining on his current contract with Brighton.

At present, Mac Allister earns around £50,000-per-week, making him one of the club’s highest earners.

The likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United would undoubtedly offer him significantly more than that figure, though, while his current employers may not be able to compete.

Chelsea and Liverpool have both been heavily linked with the likes of Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham as they look to bolster their respective midfields this summer.

Mac Allister could act as a cheaper alternative to the English duo, while United are also set to be in the market for a central midfielder with the likes of Scott McTominay and Fred having been linked with moves away from Old Trafford.
