Although Brighton & Hove Albion are still to confirm a deal for the Argentinos Juniors midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, it looks like the South American side consider the sale to be more than done.
That’s because outlet El Tucumano brings a story today talking about the Argentine side’s plans for the last days of the transfer market, and considers Mac Allister’s sale to be concluded.
It’s claimed that Argentinos Juniors already have ‘fresh money’ from the player’s sale to Brighton, and are planning to spend that on some specific targets for the rest of the season.
El Tucumano says that Argentinos Juniors received over US$8m from the sale, and now plan to sign Nery Leyes from Atletico Tucuman.
Alexis Mac Allister has already confirmed to the Argentine media that he’s joining Brighton in the summer, and will stay at Argentinos Juniors on a loan deal until then.
Confirmation from the Premier League club can’t be far away.
