    Chelsea ‘lead Mac Allister transfer race’

    Chelsea are leading the race to sign Brighton star Alexis Mac Allister, according to reports.

    The attacking midfielder impressed for Argentina at the World Cup in Qatar.

    Mac Allister, 24, played a significant role as Lionel Messi and Co won the tournament – setting up Angel Di Maria’s stunning goal in the final.

    The in-demand star is under contract at Brighton until 2025, with the South Coast side possessing an option to extend the deal by a further year.

    This hasn’t stopped would-be suitors circling, with Mac Allister receiving plenty of interest.

    According to Argentine outlet TyC Sports, Chelsea are at the front of the queue for his signature, under his former Seagulls boss Graham Potter.

    However, they will have to battle further interest from Arsenal and Atletico Madrid to get a deal over the line.
