£65m midfielder now likes tweet suggesting that Liverpool transfer awaits him

Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo has ‘liked’ a tweet suggesting that he’s set for a move to Liverpool.

The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with the Reds over recent months, as they search for midfield additions. And his latest Twitter activity is unlikely to quieten the rumour mill.

Caicedo took to the platform yesterday to raffle off two signed Brighton shirts to his followers. In the comments an account by the name of Marcos Fabricio Espi saw fit to weigh in on the midfielder’s future.

“Go ahead champion… Liverpool awaits you…” he wrote in Spanish. Caicedo duly ‘liked’ the post. Interesting. Very interesting indeed.

Caicedo teases Liverpool fans again

This isn’t the first time that Caicedo’s social media activity has caused a stir in Liverpool.

The Ecuadorian provoked excitement amongst Reds fans when he ‘liked’ Cody Gakpo’s recent unveiling at Liverpool on Instagram.

Of course, this could mean nothing at all. Caicedo is very much entitled to respond in whatever way he wants to whoever writes to him. It must be said that he did ‘like’ posts from a great many other commenters too.

It’s certainly possible that the Brighton man didn’t even read several of the comments he was liking. But given the copious reports claiming he’s being pursued by Liverpool, it seems a bit of a coincidence.

The latest is that Caicedo’s price has now been slashed from £85m to £65m. Liverpool and Chelsea appear to be the two sides most determined to pluck him from the South Coast.

That still sounds like a steep price for a player with just 24 Premier League appearances. But that’s the market. Liverpool badly need a player in the youngster’s mould and he’d be an excellent signing.

Still, any move will surely now have to wait for the summer window. The clock is ticking in January and Brighton are notoriously difficult to deal with. It’s hard to see negotiations getting done in the next three weeks.

This weekend could provide the two clubs with the perfect opportunity to kick things off, though. Liverpool head to the Amex on Saturday afternoon. It could be possible that this is what Marcos Fabricio Espi had in mind with his reply, too. Time will tell.
