Liverpool want three players all from the same club, they've just been watching 'incredible' star

Liverpool remain interested in signing Brighton duo Moises Caicedo and Evan Ferguson.

Over the last few days, the Reds have are said to have accelerated a potential deal to sign Seagulls midfielder Alexis Mac Allister. But according to GOAL, the 24-year-old’s Brighton teammates continue to catch their eye, too.

Caicedo reportedly continues to be ‘watched,’ while young Ferguson is claimed to be ‘admired.’

The interest appears to be more concrete for Caicedo. However, the 21-year-old’s expected price-tag is said to be ‘prohibitive’ to Liverpool making a move.

Meanwhile, GOAL report that Mac Allister is indeed one of the Reds top targets for the summer. Brighton are claimed to be asking for around £70m to sell him though, while competition from Chelsea and Manchester United is expected to arrive.

Throughout this season plenty of names have been put forward as potential midfield additions for Liverpool this summer. Over that time, Caicedo had seemed to be well ahead of Mac Allister as a possible signing.

But as the end of the season has drawn closer, those roles have been reversed. Perhaps owing to Brighton’s inclination to sell the Argentine over the Ecuadorian, Mac Allister now seems by far the more likely to happen. That will please some supporters, and dismay others.

Right now, it’s pretty irrefutable that both players would improve Liverpool’s midfield. So, it’s really a question of what do you think Jurgen Klopp needs more?

Some will argue that a more defensive-minded midfielder should be top of the wish-list as Fabinho’s legs age. In which case, the ‘incredible’ Caicedo would be a superb option.

Others will claim that Liverpool are more in need of a mobile midfielder who can keep the ball and affect attacking phases. In which case Mac Allister would seem the more appropriate. For the time being, it would appear that this is the stance Liverpool have taken.

But the summer is not yet even upon us. So much can change – and change quickly – in the transfer market. Let’s see where we go from here. As for Ferguson, we think he’s perhaps more one to watch next year.
