Report: Midfielder desires exit from PL club this summer and Spurs want him

90 min have claimed that Tottenham target Alexis Mac Allister has made up his mind to leave Brighton this summer.

Mac Allister’s stock skyrocketed owing to his impressing showing at the World Cup as Argentina made history in Qatar by lifting the trophy after 36 years.

It was reported ahead of the January window that Antonio Conte had instructed the Tottenham hierarchy to make a push for the player (CMW.it) but the 24-year-old stayed put at the Amex Stadium in January.

If 90 min’s latest update is to be believed, Mac Allister is expected to be on the move in the summer, with the midfielder said to have made up his mind to take the next step in his career.

The report adds that Spurs are not alone in their admiration for the Brighton star, with the likes of Liverpool, Newcastle United and Chelsea also thought to be eyeing moves for him.

It is also revealed that Atletico Madrid, Inter, Juventus and RB Leipzig are keen to secure the midfielder’s services if he became available.

However, 90 min assert that the Seagulls have no desire to part ways with their top talents and are expected to fight to hold on to Mac Allister.

Spurs Web Opinion

One way for Spurs to perhaps convince Mac Allister to join is by poaching Roberto De Zerbi from Brighton.

Among the various managers who have been linked with the Tottenham hot seat over the last week and a half, I believe that the Italian would be the best suited to build the kind of project that the club’s hierarchy want.
