Mac Allister will become the seventh Argentinian to represent Liverpool.

The midfielder told the club's website: “It feels amazing. It’s a dream come true, it’s amazing to be here and I can’t wait to get started.

“I wanted to be in [from] the first day of pre-season, so it’s good that everything is done. I’m looking forward to meeting my teammates.

“It was a fantastic year for me – World Cup, what we achieved with Brighton – but now it’s time to think about Liverpool and try to be a better player and a better human being every day.”

Mac Allister joined Brighton from Argentinos Juniors in January 2019 but spent the rest of that season with the Argentinian club, before spending the first half of the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Boca Juniors.

He finally moved to the Amex Stadium in January 2020 and went on to play 112 times for Brighton.

He further enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2022/23, scoring 12 goals in 40 appearances across all competitions as he became a key part of Roberto De Zerbi's impressive team.

He made six starts at the tournament and laid on a goal for Angel Di Maria in La Albiceleste’s thrilling final triumph over France.
