Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp announced on Friday that the club has reached an agreement with Brighton to sign Ecuador midfielder Moises Caicedo. The reported transfer fee of £110 million would make it a record-breaking deal in British football. However, the deal is still pending as Caicedo needs to undergo a medical and agree to personal terms. There have been reports that Caicedo prefers a move to Chelsea instead. Liverpool’s pursuit of Caicedo is part of their extensive midfield overhaul this summer, following the arrivals of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton and Dominik Szoboszlai from Leipzig. The departure of five midfielders, including Fabinho and Jordan Henderson, has prompted Liverpool’s search for reinforcements. If the transfer goes through, Brighton will have received a total of £150 million from Liverpool this summer for Mac Allister and Caicedo, highlighting their successful strategy of scouting and selling players for substantial fees. Caicedo, who joined Brighton in 2021, has quickly become one of the most sought-after midfielders in English football, with Chelsea also showing interest in signing him. Liverpool’s interest in Caicedo stems from his defensive abilities, ball control, speed, and pressing intensity, which align with Klopp’s tactical preferences. The potential signing of Caicedo is seen as a step towards Liverpool’s ambition to reclaim the Premier League title after finishing outside the top four last season. The transfer fee would surpass the previous British-record fees paid for Declan Rice by Arsenal and Jack Grealish by Manchester City..
