Liverpool has been linked with various midfielders, the most recent being Brighton’s Moises Caicedo.
The 20-year-old has a clear offer from Manchester United, but he does not want to move to Old Trafford, according to Studio Football.
Based on the information gathered by journalist, Maria Jose Flores, the Ecuadorian source revealed the Red Devils are not the only club interested in signing the midfielder. Even the Merseysiders are readying a move to hire his services this summer.
It is reported that Liverpool is preparing to offer a fee worth 50 million euros (£42.3million) to lure Caicedo from the Seagulls.
Brighton has already sold key players like Marc Cucurella (Chelsea) and Yves Bissouma (Tottenham), so they would not really like to lose another important member, especially after making a strong start to the season.
Caicedo mainly warmed the bench in the last campaign under Potter but he started the last eight games in the league and impressed big time.
The teenager put in strong displays in wins over Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Wolves, Manchester United, and West Ham United.
This season, he played the entire 90-minute game against Manchester United. On the other hand, he was excellent in the DM role against Newcastle United, contributing to the team’s clean sheet.
Liverpool is primarily lacking attack-minded players in the center of the field, and I do not believe they require reinforcements in the holding midfield position.
