Posted by

Have you seen the news? You know… THE news? You can’t have possibly missed it by now: Liverpool have agreed a British transfer record fee of £110m with Brighton for Moises Caicedo.

Pinch yourselves all you want (we know we are) – it’s real! Still, it’s not 100% finalised yet, it’s worth emphasising.

David Ornstein of the highly reputable The Athletic confirmed on Friday morning that the Merseysiders are yet to agree personal terms with the player. However, this is ‘expected to be a formality’.

A medical has been booked in for Friday, which would suggest more than a degree of confidence that a full deal can be agreed ahead of our upcoming visit to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

It’s news that has rightly shocked much of the Liverpool fanbase after the club appeared to be all-in on Southampton’s highly-rated prodigy Romeo Lavia.

With over £200m potentially set to be spent on the midfield rebuild, however, few will be focusing on the Belgian international in the coming hours.

  1. Liverpool must sell Thiago and buy Lavia as well. LFC lost 6 players already so there is need to replace them with quality young players.

    1. Seriously do you actually take any notice of Liverpool and playing times, between Keita, The Ox and Milner last season they played less than 3000 minutes between them, Fabinho 3600 minutes on his own and Hendo similar amount, we replaced Hendo and the other 3 by buying those that we have purchased so far, we need a CDM and then any money left over needs to be put into a CB or versatile RB.

    2. Andre is a better “like for like” replacement for Thiago than Lavia. What we need now is a CB. Schuurs or Ignacio.

  2. Tremendous effort by liverpool, go on pls, he(moises is Fantastic exactly what liverpool need right now
