The Argentine midfielder impressed Allegri during the World Cup

Juventus is jumping into pole position for Alexis Mac Allister, the Brighton midfielder who made his mark at the World Cup in Qatar. Massimiliano Allegri was reportedly very impressed with the qualities of the 1998 class, who played six games at the World Cup and proved to be a key element in Scaloni’s side winning the rainbow title.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus has already wrested the yes from the player, who has reportedly described the Bianconeri as an “extraordinary” team and has already spoken about it with family members.

Juve reportedly overcame competition from Inter Milan, which has been approached by the player in recent days. For the final green light, however, the sale of a midfielder will be needed: more than Rabiot leaving in January would be Weston McKennie, who is liked by several English clubs and could leave at a good price. Money that would be immediately reinvested to get to Mac Allister, whom Brighton does not want to give up for less than 40 million euros.
