Liverpool are considering a move for Moises Caicedo to solve their midfield issues

The stock of Brighton and Hove Albion star Moises Caicedo has risen exponentially since entering the Premier League, with Liverpool the latest side to show interest in acquiring the services of the player.

The Ecuadorian was the subject of interest from rivals Manchester United two years before Brighton scooped up his services from Independenteiente del Valle.

Caicedo initially spent some time with the Brighton U-21s before making the switch to the senior level and notched 10 appearances for the senior side in the 2021/22 season, including a long-range strike on the last day of the season against United.

Brighton & Hove Albion Manager Graham Potter was delighted to acquire the services of the young defensive midfielder but was assured to give him proper time to acclimatise to the league. Speaking to the club’s official website (h/t the Daily Guardian):

“It’s no secret we have been working to bring Moises to the club, and we are very pleased he is finally here. He will need time to settle in with the group, for us to get to know him and vice versa, as well as get up to speed and ready for the demands of the Premier League”

Potter was accurate in his assessment of the player and the player has repaid the faith within two years and looks much better suited to the intensity and physicality of the Premier League, hence attracting the interest of top Premier League clubs.

A defensive midfielder is the core of any top side and actually makes a big difference to the way the team transitions from defence to attack. With Fabinho out of form, it is time that the Reds bring in an alternative.

Moises Caicedo is only 20 years old and has a lot of time on his side to establish his name as a top-holding midfielder. However, he has to be aware of his next step as joining a top team too early in his career can derail his development by not providing him with the desired minutes.

However, every player has dreams of playing for the top honours and opportunities of transferring to such teams do not come very often. Hence, the interest is surely going to create a dilemma in the players’ minds.
