Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister has addressed the speculation surrounding his future as he continues to attract interest from several Premier League clubs, including Chelsea, ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.
Mac Allister, who currently plays for Brighton, has emerged as a prominent figure both at club and international level. His exceptional performances have not only contributed to Argentina’s success in winning the World Cup but have also propelled Brighton to secure a spot in the Europa League, thanks to his impressive tally of 10 goals and two assists in the highly competitive English top-flight.
While Liverpool has been strongly linked with Mac Allister, looking to bolster their midfield options this summer, Stamford Bridge has also emerged as a potential destination for the talented midfielder.
Despite the ongoing speculation, Mac Allister has expressed his tranquility regarding his uncertain future during a recent interview with the Argentine outlet Infobae, based in Miami.
The 23-year-old midfielder remains composed as he approaches this pivotal juncture in his career. His calm demeanor reflects a player who is focused on making the right decision for his professional development and is unperturbed by the speculation surrounding his potential move to a bigger club in the Premier League.
Mac Allister’s remarkable performances have undoubtedly caught the attention of top-tier clubs, but for now, he is content with maintaining his composure and patiently considering the options that lie ahead.
As the summer transfer window draws near, it remains to be seen which club will secure the services of this highly talented Argentine midfielder and how he will further elevate his career in the demanding landscape of English football.
“I am very calm because I also have the possibility of being in a club like Brighton that accompanied me at all times and in which I really enjoy being,” Mac Allister said.
“If I do not have to leave the club I will continue to be very happy there, but I am aware that there are possibilities (to move) and if a good offer arrives for the club and for me we will evaluate it.
“I have no doubts that (the Premier League) is the best league to play in and that is why I am aware that I would like my next club to be in the Premier. I really enjoy being there.”
Additionally, the Seagulls’ man revealed the ambitions he holds dear, and that could influence where he believes is the best place for him to develop.
He said: “The objective is to continue improving as a person, as a player, to win more titles. I think this is my short-term objective and it will always be, because I will always be the same person and I will want to be a little better than the day before, so I focus a lot on that.
“I’m not going to complain, I’m 24 years old, I’m a world champion, I play in one of the best leagues in the world and I feel that my career is growing, but I still have my feet on the ground and I really want to improve, becoming a better person and better player every day. We’ll see what the future brings.”
