Liverpool have received a transfer raise as goal Moises Caicedo’s price was cut by £20m, according to reports.

The Reds have long been linked to a move by the Brighton midfielder, who was initially thought to be priced at £85m. but it is now believed the Seagulls would be tempted by a bid of over £60m with add-ons.

With that in mind, it looks too good a deal for Jürgen Klopp’s men to pass up, especially considering how desperately Liverpool are in need of reinforcements in midfield. Many members of the Anfield faithful have called for a new signing to bolster their options in the park’s center since the departure of Georginio Wijnaldum.

It’s both ways, small spaces, big spaces, they are difficult challenges, good football, practically everything.

Some would argue it would be remiss of the club to lose its potential successor due to similar financial reasons, with Caicedo available for a relatively small fee, Liverpool need to act quickly.

The Reds’ last appearance saw them draw 2–2 at home to Wolves in the third round of the FA Cup in a match which exposed some of Liverpool’s obvious vulnerabilities.
