From signing Caicedo to not signing Caicedo – Latest LFC News

Just another day in the crazy world that is Liverpool Football Club! If you’ve been busy, here’s a bite-size look at everything you might have missed.


Caicedo saga rumbles on

Friday was filled with conflicting reports over the future of Moises Caicedo, with Liverpool agreeing a sensational deal to sign the Ecuadorian in the early hours of the morning.

The Reds had what would be a British record fee accepted by Brighton, but varying noises have since indicated that he could yet be destined for Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have pursued Caicedo throughout the summer but appeared to have been gazumped by Liverpool after the Seagulls set a midnight deadline to resolve the player’s departure.

It was then claimed that the player would prefer a move to Chelsea over Liverpool, with Caicedo’s agent angering Brighton by holding up the deal in order to assess the option of Pochettino’s side.

We can’t keep up either!
