Premier League

Erik ten Hag amazed by Alexis Mac Allister’s display, sees him as midfield partner for Casemiro

According to AS Argentina, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is interested in signing Brighton & Hove Albion player Alexis Mac Allister this summer.

The 24-year-old has made an impressive debut for the Seagulls this season and is now one of the most sought-after midfielders in the Premier League.

Newcastle United and Liverpool are interested in him, but Ten Hag appears to be keen on getting him to Old Trafford in the next transfer window.

Mac Allister's performance in the FA Cup semi-final reportedly 'amazed' the Dutch manager, who sees him as a potential partner for Casemiro in central midfield.

Ten Hag admires the World Cup winner's adaptability. Brighton has set an asking price of €70 million.

Mac Allister would be an excellent signing for Manchester United.

The Argentine has had a fantastic season with the Seagulls, scoring 10 goals and providing two assists in 33 appearances.

Aside from his involvement in goals, he has also excelled at distribution. He averages 46 passes per league game with an accuracy of 88%.

On defence, he has averaged over two tackles and five duels.

As a result, Mac Allister has evolved into a complete midfielder, and Ten Hag will be aiming to entice him to Old Trafford with the promise of a starting spot.

Christian Eriksen is the current regular at number eight, but Mac Allister might be regarded a solid upgrade on the Denmark's ace.

Meanwhile, when Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes are rested, Mac Allister could fill in at holding and attacking midfield.

Mac Allister, who is in his prime years of his career, would be a no-brainer acquisition for United, but they will have to pay a premium for his services.
