According to Fabrizio Romano, the 24-year-old will complete the formalities of his move over the course of the next 24 hours and wants the deal sorted before he is due to join up with the Argentina international squad ahead of the upcoming games against Australia and Indonesia. Liverpool have beaten off competition from the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea for the World Cup winner and for much less than had originally been reported. Speculation that Mac Allister’s release clause fee stood at £70million were wide of the mark and the Reds are set to pay between £45 and and £61m for one of the Premier League’s most accomplished midfield technicians. Following the departures of James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, it was always Liverpool’s plan to conduct a major overhaul of their engine room this summer.

The Merseysiders held a long-standing interest in England international Jude Bellingham but have been priced out a move for the Real Madrid-bound Borussia Dortmund star. Liverpool have moved on from that setback by making efforts to recruit French duo Manu Kone and Khephren Thuram.
