Liverpool could yet surprise fans with further transfer business in the next window to address their problem area in the middle of the park.

According to CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs on Twitter, the Reds are keeping a close eye on Moises Caicedo alongside several Premier League clubs, including Chelsea whom former Brighton manager Graham Potter now leads.

Should both outfits in question contest for the Ecuadorian’s signature in the next window, there’s no question that the Blues would possess an advantage in that regard.
