The father of Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Allister was reportedly sat amongst Liverpool officials during last week's Champions League clash with Real Madrid.
The Brighton midfielder, who saw his stock skyrocket due to playing an instrumental role in Argentina's World Cup triumph last year, is represented by his father Carlos and has been touted with a big-money move away from the Amex this summer.
But according to Football Transfers, the process of locating a potential destination seems to be underway - with Mac Allister's dad said to have visited Anfield for the Reds' 5-2 defeat against Spanish and European champions Real Madrid.

Mac Allister, who is contracted with the Premier League outfit until 2025, has been quoted by various reports as being valued by Brighton officials in the region of £65m.
However, last month the 24-year-old reaffirmed his commitment to the Seagulls in an interview with Albion TV, insisting he is happy at the Amex.
“I try not to read too much [speculation]," said Mac Allister. "I always say I am happy here, I don’t have any rush to leave. I feel really good, I’m really grateful with this club, my teammates and all the people who work here.
"I’m just focused on the next game and this club. It was a good World Cup for this club and for the players who went to the World Cup."
