Liverpool, which aimed to rejuvenate its midfielders after the departures of James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, opened the transfer market as the centerpiece and Argentine midfielder who led Brighton to sixth place in the Premier League Alexis Mac Allister.
The little technician, who had a productive season and helped the team win the World Cup in Qatar last year, will take on a new challenge at Anfield.
Former England midfielder Danny Murphy, who played for Liverpool and Fulham during his playing days, frankly expressed his surprise at the acquisition of the player, but said he will be an integral part of the team.
“I was surprised to see Liverpool sign him because he’s not the usual Jurgen Klopp midfielder. He usually likes them strong and physical while Mac Alliser is diminutive and technical.”
“I’m excited to see how Klopp uses him and his impact on the team because he’s a gifted player. It’s a change in approach but he could become a real talisman. The fans will adore him.”Daily Mail
In midfield, he can play in a variety of positions. He can play in an attacking position, such as up top, while also supplying a high level of performance as a volante or as a central midfielder.
Although he has not been flashy in the preseason, he is gaining recognition for his solid, surroundings-oriented play.
If he can work more closely with the rest of the team and develop a better understanding with new midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, he should be able to develop a more attractive attack.
