Brighton identify replacement for 'incredible' £70m Liverpool target

Brighton & Hove Albion have reportedly identified Sassuolo midfielder Davide Frattesi as a potential replacement for Moises Caicedo, who Liverpool have been heavily linked with.

According to TalkSport, the Italian international is on Roberto De Zerbi’s radar as the Seagulls being to put plans into action for their summer window, with Caicedo expected to join Mac Allister out of the Amex Stadium amid links to Liverpool.

The Argentine international is reportedly already Anfield-bound, and according to Goal, the 21-year-old Caicedo is also wanted by Liverpool, who might have to pay as much as £100m if they want to secure the services of the Ecuadorian superstar this summer.

Once lauded as ‘incredible’ by Brighton defender Adam Webster, Liverpool’s chances of signing Caicedo are seemingly growing by the day, and news this week that the Seagulls are interested in Frattesi could add more fuel to the fire that the South American is off.

Indeed, Liverpool know that Caicedo would be an outstanding signing for their midfield ranks this summer, and with Brighton already making moves to bring in Frattesi, the Anfield side could soon have to make a push of their own to bring the 21-year-old to Merseyside.

Brighton eyeing Frattesi should inspire Liverpool to move for Caicedo


With Mac Allister more-or-less already a Liverpool player, signing Caicedo only makes sense from an Anfield point-of-view, and Brighton moving for Frattesi should inspire Jurgen Klopp and his transfer team to make a push for the Ecuadorian talent.

Although the midfielder’s price tag will be lofty, Caicedo has proven this season that he has the potential to become one of the best in his position in the Premier League, and Liverpool could be a perfect next destination for the 21-year-old in the summer.
