Father of rumoured Spurs target hints that summer transfer is on the cards 

The father of rumoured Tottenham target, Alexis Mac Allister, has now confirmed that the Brighton midfielder is looking for the ‘right project’ as he evaluates his next destination this summer.

Mac Allister has been one of Brighton’s most consistent performers since the start of last season but it was his showing on the highest stage in last year’s World Cup that catapulted him into international notoriety.

90 min reported earlier this month that Tottenham are one of the clubs who are keen on snapping up the 24-year-old, with the Lilywhites said to be battling the likes of Liverpool, Newcastle United and Chelsea for the player’s signature.

The publication asserted that the Argentina international is expected to be on the move at the end of the season as he has already made up his mind to take the next step in his career.

Mac Allister’s father has now essentially confirmed the same, revealing that several clubs have been in contact regarding his son’s availability.

He told ESPN (as relayed by Fabrizio Romano): “Clubs are starting to call us for Alexis but there are no concrete talks now.

“We’ll decide together with Brighton, they deserve respect.

“We will pick the best project, based on the coach too — it’s not about money”.

Brighton are not going to let Mac Allister leave on the cheap considering he is contracted at the Amex Stadium until 2026.

Tottenham would perhaps be an attractive destination for the 24-year-old if we were to convince Roberto De Zerbi to take over from Antonio Conte this summer, however with so much uncertainty at the club at present, it would be unlikely that any player would be keen to move until they know more about who will be in charge and what the project actually is.
