Liverpool have announced the signing of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton in their first major transfer of the summer.

The Argentina international, who was a member of the squad that won the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, arrives at Anfield for just £35 million after the Reds triggered a release clause in his Brighton contract. Officially, however, the transfer fee will remain undisclosed.

“It feels amazing. It’s a dream come true, it’s amazing to be here and I can’t wait to get started,” the 24-year-old told the club’s official website.

“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.”

What shirt number is Alexis Mac Allister at Liverpool?

Mac Allister will wear the No.10 shirt in the 2023/24 season for Liverpool.

The Reds did not disclose which jersey number he would wear in their official press release but did unveil their new signing's number on Twitter.

The No.10 shirt is historically one of the most significant in the history of Liverpool, with many club legends through the years taking that jersey. During the Premier League era, some of the most important players to don that number include John Barnes, Michael Owen and Philippe Coutinho.

Sadio Mane was the most recent legend to take the No.10 shirt at Anfield, with that jersey having been vacant during the 2022/23 season following the Senegal international’s move to Bayern Munich.

Mac Allister will hope that it brings him as much success at Liverpool as it did for his predecessor.
