Moises Caicedo is reportedly keen on joining Liverpool despite recent claims that the Brighton & Hove Albion star was not open on a move to Anfield.

According to journalist Kevin Palmer, the £100m-rated Ecuador international could now be leaning towards a switch to Merseyside, with news breaking today that Liverpool have made an approach for Caicedo.

The Reds today have intensified their interest in the 21-year-old having spent most of the past few weeks chasing Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia.

However, Liverpool have seemingly changed their tune with a move for Caicedo now on the cards, even if the midfielder might cost more than double what the Saints are demanding for Lavia this window.

Indeed, the race for Caicedo will be an interesting one in the coming days. And for Liverpool, their new interest in the midfielder could result in one of the best transfers of the summer.

Caicedo is a player who could transform a Premier League midfield on his own, and for Liverpool, the youngster would be nothing short of a revelation for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Yes, the finances involved would cripple the Reds and potentially stop them from adding more signings this window, but there’s no denying that Caicedo could elevate Liverpool’s squad into something incredible.

Moreover, with the player now keen on a move, there’s every chance that Liverpool can strike a deal with Brighton despite their £100m asking price for Caicedo.
