Report: Tottenham want Alexis Mac Allister as early as January

Antonio Conte wants Tottenham Hotspur to try and sign Alexis Mac Allister as soon as the January transfer window, according to a report from Calciomercatoweb.

Mac Allister may still be pinching himself over the fact that he helped Argentina win the World Cup. In fact, the 23-year-old played a key role in Lionel Scaroni’s men getting their hands on the trophy.

He went into the tournament in good form for Brighton, scoring five times in the Premier League. But it appears that his ‘incredible‘ performances at the World Cup has prompted a number of clubs to take an interest.

Tottenham would like Mac Allister as early as January

Reports from L’Interista last week suggested that Tottenham were monitoring Mac Allister, along with a number of other European sides.

And it seems that Conte would like him through the door in the very near future. According to a report from Calciomercatoweb, the Spurs boss would like Mac Allister signed as early as January.

The report adds that Mac Allister will cost around £30 million. But you would imagine that Brighton would now want a lot more for the Argentinian – particularly if he is going to leave in the winter window.

It would be a real statement if Tottenham could sign Mac Allister in January. His stock is incredibly high after his performances in Qatar. And he had been superb for Brighton in the opening months of the season.

Should he pick up where he left off when the Premier League campaign resumes, his asking price is only going to increase further. And the amount of interest in him will intensify also.

Brighton are going to be ready to dig their heels in. They have sold a number of their key players in recent years. And they will hope that they can keep Mac Allister and build a team which can take that next step.
