Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister gives approval to potential Juventus move

Alexis Mac Allister is open to moving to Juventus in the summer and he has given the green light for a switch to the Bianconeri.

Recent reports have stated that the Old Lady are keen on a summer move for the World Cup winner, with both Weston McKennie and Adrien Rabiot expected to depart the side.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claim today that Allegri has been left ‘bewitched’ by the Argentine’s performances in the World Cup and Mac Allister has, internally, spoken to his family, friends and close ones about the Bianconeri. He is convinced about Juventus as his next destination, once he leaves Brighton.

Juve would be a more than welcome destination for him, till the time the club reach Brighton’s valuation. In the January transfer window, a signing would only be possible if a sale takes place and McKennie, who is liked by many English sides, is a prime candidate to depart.

Adrien Rabiot will leave for free in the summer and Mac Allister is seen as a replacement for the Frenchman. The Argentine is currently above Sergej Milinkovic-Savic on Juve’s shortlist, even if the Old Lady know that dealing with Brighton won’t be easy considering how much they sold Marc Cucurella for. While they would try to incite an auction for the midfielder too, only signs of interest have arrived from Atletico Madrid so far and Juve are well in the lead.
