Fabrizio Romano shares Moises Caicedo update amid Liverpool transfer links
Liverpool have been linked with a number of midfielders over the past few months.
The Reds are reportedly planning to revamp their midfield this year amid expiring contracts and ageing legs.
Jude Bellingham is Liverpool’s top target in that position, but there are other names doing the rounds too.
One of those is Moises Caicedo, who has been linked with the Anfield outfit since last summer.
Fabrizio Romano has now provided an update on the Brighton and Ecuador star amid links with Liverpool.
“Chelsea and Liverpool have always been following Moises Caicedo,” he wrote on CaughtOffside.
“Now his new agent’s situation will be clarified in a matter of days.
“It will be an important step to understand more on his future.”
Caicedo is currently in the process of changing agency, with an apparent view to a future move.
Romano took to Twitter last week to claim the 21-year-old had already made his decision regarding his new agents.
‘Do it now’
It looks as though the relevant parties will sort out the final details in the coming days.
Then, Liverpool may well fancy their chances of potentially landing Caicedo.
However, the Reds will be up against a number of other top clubs in pursuit of the talented midfielder.
The Daily Mirror reported that Liverpool, Chelsea and Newcastle United want the £65million-rated talent.
Caicedo has really stepped up for Brighton since they sold Yves Bissouma in the summer.
ESPN pundit and former United States international Janusz Michallik has urged Liverpool to sign the 21-year-old.
“Caicedo, for Liverpool, I would do it now, if there’s a way. They need legs,” he told ESPN.
“That midfield needs legs. And that’s exactly what you’re going to get.
“A physical player, box-to-box, he can defend, he can attack. We saw his goal at the World Cup.
“Moises Caicedo, the profile for Liverpool, at this moment, they need it now.
“They need it right away because that’s not going to be easily fixed even when everybody’s healthy.
“That would be a perfect signing.”
Liverpool have sprung quite a few transfer surprises over the past 12 months.
Last January, there was Luis Diaz. This transfer window, Cody Gakpo has joined.
Could Caicedo be next?
