Liverpool have reportedly opened talks with Brighton & Hove Albion for midfielder Moises Caicedo.
The Lowdown: Gakpo in
The Reds have already bolstered Jurgen Klopp’s squad days ahead of the January window officially opening by securing the services of Cody Gakpo.
An agreement has been reached with PSV that will see the Dutch forward become a Liverpool player on January 1. It doesn’t look as if the club are finished there, though, with significant news emerging on Caicedo.
The Latest: Caicedo next
Journalist Rudy Galetti took to Twitter to relay news regarding the Reds opening talks with Brighton for Caicedo on Thursday evening.
He added that an enquiry was made on Wednesday and said ‘just now Liverpool want to speed up things to sign the player’.
The Verdict: Exciting
Many supporters may have been hoping to see the club look to bring in a midfielder following the arrival of Gakpo, especially as that area of the pitch has been a hot topic of transfer conversation in recent months.
Caicedo, hailed as an ‘exceptional player and character‘ by his team-mates, has been a regular for the Seagulls this season and has outperformed all of Liverpool’s senior midfielders in the Premier League, as per WhoScored.
Still just 21 years of age, he appears to be a star of the future, so a move now could be an exciting one both in the short and long run.
