Liverpool make last-minute bid for Brighton’s big talent – Football World – England

Liverpool are preparing a last-minute bid for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo. According to “The Sun”, the offer will be worth 42 million pounds, but it is unlikely to succeed because the “Seagulls” value the talented Ecuadorian much higher.

Speculation has been rife in the last two days that Merseyside manager Jurgen Klopp will still try to sign a new midfielder due to the injury crisis in that area of ​​the pitch. The German is currently unable to use Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlay and Naby Keita, who are out with various injuries. Sheffield United playmaker Sander Berge was also rumored to be a potential target yesterday.

Caicedo was signed in February 2021 from Independiente for £4.5 million. In the first half of the friendly season, he played on loan at Belgian side Beerschot. However, the youngster has impressed since then and Brighton have lost just one of the 12 league games in which Caicedo has started so far. This match was the visit of Manchester City in April.

Graham Potter himself commented on the Caicedo transfer rumors as follows:

“You never know in football, but we are quite calm and confident. For that price, they might just get his shoes. 100 million pounds? They can try. It doesn’t surprise me that there is interest in him because he is playing at a fantastic level. He has the qualities to play at the highest level. The club’s position is that we don’t want to lose him and we don’t think that will happen.”
