Brighton star Alexis Mac Allister has already issued his verdict on a possible transfer amid links with Arsenal.

The Gunners have a recent history of shopping on the South Coast, snapping up Leandro trossard during the January transfer window, and it’s now being claimed the Gunners are interested in the Seagulls’ World Cup winner. Argentine midfielder Mac Allister is said to be of interest, with Football Insider reporting Arsenal are part of a transfer battle to land the 24-year-old.

It’s claimed Liverpool are ready to kick off the bidding, while the Gunners, as well as Manchester City and Manchester United are said to be interested. It’s claimed Brighton want around £70million for their World Cup winner, and it’s also claimed that Mac Allister is ‘ready’ to move on to a bigger club.

But quotes from Mac Allister himself suggest that is not the case, with the midfielder telling InfoBae in February that he is very happy at the Amex Stadium.

Asked about transfer interest from the Premier League’s biggest clubs, he said: “I know that they have a lot of love for me at Brighton. To share my medal and what I have achieved with the people here, with my teammates, it was special for me because I know that without them, it would not be possible. They know how important they were. I love this club and I believe they love me as well.”

Speaking more generally about Brighton and their success story over recent times, he added: “In the Premier League last season, we wanted to be in the top 10. Each yea, you dream and you always want more. This club is prepared to play in Europe. Since I arrived three years ago, we have battled against the drop and now we are fighting to be in Europe. I think it’s possible.”
