Caicedo bid expected, no Thiago offer & Andre possibility – Latest LFC News

It has been a day full of twists and turns in the transfer window for Liverpool, as Chelsea and the Reds play games with Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia in the middle of it all.


Caicedo contact and Lavia competition?!

It has been a wild day, so let’s keep it concise with all we know so far.

First, Chelsea were reported to have outbid Liverpool for Lavia, tabling £48 million to Southampton on Wednesday evening.

In turn, it was then claimed Liverpool outbid Chelsea for Moises Caicedo, though This Is Anfield understands contact with Brighton has been made but no official offer submitted (as of the time of writing).

Sounds like an element of posturing from both clubs to get what they want, Liverpool reporters were saying contact and no bid, while those on the Chelsea beat claimed an offer was made.

Hours after all this unfolded, though, journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that a “formal bid” from Liverpool is expected for the Brighton midfielder in the “following hours.”

The Seagulls are ready to sell to the “highest bidder” in the next 24 hours – they want up to £100 million for the 21-year-old.

The majority expect Lavia to end up in the red of Liverpool and Caicedo at Stamford Bridge, but only time will tell how this all pans out – hopefully, the Reds surprise us all!

  • Liverpool have not received a £10.3m bid for Thiago from a Saudi club, despite contrary reports. Surely no price is right for this one as the Reds need midfielders…

  • Unfortunately, Calvin Ramsay has suffered an injury setback on loan at Preston but, thankfully, it’s not serious enough to see him return to Liverpool
