According to journalist Ben Jacobs, Liverpool have not begun negotiations to sign Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo
LIVERPOOL IS NOW PARTNERED WITH CAICEDO
Earlier this week, it was reported that the Reds have contacted Brighton about a potential transfer for the Ecuadorian and are eager to move quickly to get him.
As he continues to excel on the south coast, the 21-year-old has been linked with Chelsea, Manchester United, and Newcastle United.
THE TRANSFER TAVERN’S MOST READ
Reports in the player’s home country (via DaveOCKOP) then claimed that Julian Ward and FSG had began talks over a trade for Caicedo, but Jacobs believes differently…
THE MOST RECENT: NOT SO FAST
Jacobs had this to say about the Caicedo case in a recent Twitter tweet.
“Not much has changed in terms of how’messy’ a deal may turn out to be. Historical curiosity does not imply something happening right now. Contrary to various rumors, LFC has not begun any negotiations with Brighton.”
LIVERPOOL SHOULD SIGNATURE CAICEDO
Caicedo’s performances for Brighton in the league this season have demonstrated why he is so much sought after and supposedly costs £85 million.
For example, having played in all 15 league games for the Seagulls, the midfielder has made more advanced passes (68) than any other player at the club, as well as having the highest number of tackles and interceptions (65) at Brighton.
The Ecuador international’s total performances for Brighton this season have earned him a WhoScored season rating of 6.9/10, earning him the club’s fourth-highest ranked player.
Curtis Woodhouse described Caicedo as a “excellent” player, and he has demonstrated how helpful he is in possession in terms of bringing the ball forward as well as how effective he is when attempting to win the ball back for his team.
Moving forward, despite Jacobs‘ recent update, we believe the Reds should be working on a potential January deal for the midfielder.
