Many Liverpool supporters were equally delighted and surprised when news came that we were signing Cody Gakpo as, although there is no doubting the quality of the player, there was an expectation that a midfielder would be prioritised this winter.
As reported by TERADEPORTES (translated) though, we may still be pushing to sign another option for the middle of the park: ‘Yesterday Liverpool ratified its intention to buy the Ecuadorian for less than the € 70Million requested by Brighton and resent the offer.
‘The reds are the most interested and it is the most formal offer, Brighton likes it, but they want more money less bonds’.
Moises Caicedo is not a new name that has been linked with a move to Anfield and there was a huge amount of speculation surrounding him during the end of the summer transfer window.
The Ecuadorian appears to be keen on a move, if his Instagram antics are anything to go by, and so it would just be a matter of convincing Brighton to sell the player at the price we want to buy at.
With the 21-year-old being hotly touted to many clubs though, we may have to spend more money than first anticipated but there will be further worries that this could then decrease a possible war chest that could be spent on Jude Bellingham in the summer.
There does seem to be a feeling that some of our fans will never be happy no matter what happens in this window but it feels like we can’t rule out the possibility of another player being brought in yet.
