World Cup winner and Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister has dropped a major hint on his future.

The 24-year-old’s stock has gone through the roof since helping Argentina to World Cup glory in Qatar, although he insists that he remains focused on the Seagulls for now. 

Speaking to TyC Sports, Mac Allister said: “I don’t have a particular team where I say ‘this is the way I play.

“I think that here in the Premier League there are very strong teams that play very well, like Manchester City and Arsenal.

“Chelsea too. I had [Graham] Potter [as my manager at Brighton] and I know the idea he has to play football. Manchester United is returning to be what it was and Liverpool are going through some ups and downs but they still have a very important team.

“If I have to say a place, I would like my next step to be in the Premier League. But the truth is that I am very focused here in Brighton and enjoying the present.”
