According to 90 min, Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo is on the radars of several clubs across Europe. Among his suitors are Barcelona, Liverpool and Chelsea, but the Seagulls are unlikely to entertain any approaches for the 20-year-old Ecuadorian international in this transfer window. The latter stages of the summer transfer window will sometimes bring about opportunistic signings.
That is because most big clubs are expected to have finalised their significant transfer business by this period and, many a time, tend to look for a player who could improve them in many ways.
Since the new Premier League season began, Moises Caicedo’s name has emerged on the shortlists of many big clubs. One of them, Manchester United, could have signed him for as little as €5 million from Independiente del Valle 18 months ago, but they passed up the opportunity. Today the Red Devils are in the queue with many other big clubs that are keen on signing the 20-year-old Ecuadorian midfielder. Caicedo has made a name for himself in the last six months with Brighton, becoming one of Graham Potter’s key men in the middle of the park.
While he can operate slightly in the attacking role, Caicedo can double up as a defensive midfielder, and he looks like a complete midfield package. Manchester United and Arsenal registered their interest some days, and they have soon been joined by Barcelona, Liverpool and Chelsea.
All those clubs are keen on signing a new midfielder and have identified Caicedo as the right player. Liverpool, in particular, may be looking at a new midfielder amid Thiago Alcantara’s absence through injury. In addition, Naby Keita has been injury prone throughout his time at the Premier League club. Former Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge has urged the Reds to sign the player this summer.
