Juventus has been blown away by Liverpool in the race for World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister as the Reds close in on the Brighton midfielder.

Several clubs have eyed the Argentinian since the World Cup, and Juve was keen to make him one of their players.

The Black and Whites were confident he would move to Serie A and Brighton was always open to the sale.

The Premier League side is a selling club and has been looking for a replacement for him for a long time already.

However, Juve faced competition from other top sides and Liverpool seems to have beaten them to his signature.

Calciomercato reveals the Reds have tabled a massive bid for his signature and Juve simply cannot match their offer, so Mac Allister is remaining in the Premier League.

 Juve FC Says

Mac Allister would have been a good addition to our squad, but we always risked missing out on his signature because of the competition for it.

Apart from the Argentinian, if we do not make more funds available for transfer, we will miss out on world-class talents to other competitors.

The market for players is currently inflated, and whoever offers the most money gets the player.
