Caicedo has now told Liverpool who he wants to sign for amid Chelsea’s renewed pursuit

Posted by

Moises Caicedo is understood to be standing firm on his preference of a Chelsea move this summer.

Fabrizio Romano shared the update in question on X following Liverpool’s successful bid of £111m, beating out interest from the Blues.

Where this leaves Jurgen Klopp’s men now remains to be seen, with so little in the way of quality options remaining in the current market.

That is, of course, unless there’s room for a radical solution.

In what form that maty take will depend massively – in similar circumstances to our late Caicedo interest – on opportunity.

Liverpool’s long-standing interest in Aurelien Tchouameni will perhaps be the club’s last chance, should Real Madrid even be vaguely open to the idea of sanctioning an exit, of securing a readymade number six.

As far as we’re concerned here at Empire of the Kop, Southampton’s Romeo Lavia now looks the likeliest solution. Though, with the powers around us more than aware of the £110m we possess in the bank, there can be no doubting our need to cough up the Saints’ desired price-tag if we’re to land the former Manchester City youngster.

  1. Caicedo prefers Chelsea to liverpool as Lavia wants liverpool over Chelsea, so let’s it be,Lavia is fantastic young player for liverpool, I think a player who doesn’t like be at an field shouldn’t our priority, but we can’t waste time in searching a player who prefers to at an field like Lavia, the money for caiceido is very high after all, clopp can do it better with Lavia.

    1. Moses is a silly silly boy he will be a squad player at Chelsea…. his advisors told him to go to an field but he has chosen London… revoke the bid go get lavia…

  2. If he goes to Chelsea, he is a fool and will reap what he sows. LFC should take the 111Mill and get Lavia and Gabri Vega.
    I liked (note past tense) Caicedo and would have liked him to be at LFC but if he does not want to be part of a great club, then let him settle for mediocrity.

  3. Well if he prefers Chelsea then let him go. Why would you buy a player who prefers to play for another team? Liverpool should
    have pay the asking price for Romeo Lavia. For £111 millions we could buy 2 good players. FSG do not seem to bother about the future of the team.

  4. Walk away… Now.. I think he is being silly as chelsea just buy buy buy then drop if things get tough… Lakaku, salah, de brune for instance or if sorry when, they get rid of the manager. If he wants to sit on the chelsea bench then so be it. Get lavia, Gravenbach and Per schurrs. Would cost less and all would want to be at Anfield.
