Tottenham Hotspur sent transfer message by Alexis Mac Allister’s father as Brighton exit could be near
The increased hype is a result of his performances at the 2022 FIFA World Cup with Argentina, where he started in the final against France and assisted a goal as his team lifted their third World Cup trophy in history.
His father, Carlos, is involved in the decisions surrounding his son’s future. Now, he has claimed that he, his son, and the Seagulls will assess the offers they receive for the 24-year-old before making a transfer decision.
“I can only say that together with the club we will analyse the offers we receive, then we will decide what will happen to Alexis’ future. He is doing very well in England and he is grateful to Brighton because they gave him the possibility to reach Europe.”
With the January transfer window now open, a transfer away from the Amex could be on the cards. But his father, while not closing a door on Alexis’ exit from Brighton, has refused to divulge further information.
“However, we cannot provide a price, nor do we say who called us. We don’t want to give information that could prejudice imminent negotiations, if any.”
There are still two-and-a-half years left on his contract at Brighton (Transfermarkt) which means Brighton are in a strong position to place a big valuation on the player. He is important for them, as shown by his five goals in 14 league games this season.
And there will be suitors for him. The central midfielder can also play out wide and is technically adept with his feet with strong passing skills.

Given his age, potential, and of course, newfound hype, teams could be fighting for his signature. Hopefully, Spurs can compete with them to onboard him. For this, they will need to flex their financial muscles and show Mac Allister that the club is headed in the right direction – which could begin by extending manager Antonio Conte’s contract at the club first.
