Moises Caicedo has rejected a move to Chelsea in the last minute to join this Premier League club. Liverpool could enter race to sign 21-year-old Chelsea target. Liverpool were linked with a move for the Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo in recent months.
A report from Talksport now claims that they could enter the race to sign the 21-year-old midfielder if Jordan Henderson and Fabinho leave the club this summer.
Both players have been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia and it will be interesting to see how the situation pans out.
Meanwhile, Caicedo is thought to be a target for Premier League club Chelsea as well. The Blues need to sign a quality defensive midfielder after the departure of N’Golo Kanté.
The 21-year-old has established himself as one of the best young defensive midfielders in the country and he could prove to be a solid acquisition for Liverpool.
The likes of Henderson and Fabinho were quite underwhelming last season and Liverpool needed to bring in an upgrade on both players.
While they have replaced Henderson already, signing a defensive midfielder will be imperative if Fabinho leaves the club.
Caicedo has the potential to develop into a world-class player and working under a manager like Jurgen Klopp will help him improve further.
It will be intriguing to see if the Reds and Brighton can come to terms on a contract for the midfielder. Recently, the two teams also worked on Alexis Mac Allister’s transfer.
But this summer, Caicedo is probably going to be more expensive. The midfielder just extended his contract with Brighton, so the Seagulls are not under any immediate pressure to sell him.
Chelsea has been attempting to reach a deal with Brighton for the 21-year-old as well, but the Blues have been unable to come to an agreement on a fair price.
