Moises Caicedo speaks out on transfer rumours amid Liverpool links
Brighton’s Moises Caicedo is among the numerous midfielders who are linked with a move to Liverpool. The versatile central midfielder has made 21 appearances across all competitions for the Seagulls this season, scoring a goal and assisting one.
The player saw himself on the Reds’ radar after a good opening spell earlier in the season with Brighton and a very good World Cup campaign for Ecuador. His performances ever since have been on an upward trajectory. Caicedo is certainly one of the best young midfielders in the league right now.
The 21-year-old is also of interest to Chelsea who in fact, unsuccessfully bid an amount of £55m for the player. Either the Seagulls value their player a lot or they do not want to let go of the player, at least in this window.
The player talked about his future with Brighton’s official website and spoke about the speculation and the narrative surrounding the player and a potential move elsewhere. Here is what he said:
“I am focussed on Brighton. I am here, I’m playing every day. Things from outside don’t trouble me, nor does it take that focus away because I’m focussed only on here. I handle [the speculation] well…
“You hear rumours here and there, but I only try to be focused on the club where I am now, the club which opened the doors for me to be playing every week.”
Caicedo could fit in well at the Reds
Well, that makes things awkward. Or maybe not. The player is naturally focused on playing at his best for Brighton, as he should and is tactically avoiding any rumours and speculation well. The part-time defensive midfielder is an integral part of the midfield pivot for Roberto de Zerbi.
He demonstrates versatility and dynamism as a midfielder, displaying strength both defensively and in the attack. His work rate, aggressive tackling, quick counter-attacking, and ability to drive the ball forward earn him recognition. Observations indicate that his playing style of high-press aligns well with that of Jurgen Klopp, making him a suitable addition to the team.
Some of the players in the middle of the field for Liverpool are getting older or will not play for the team anymore soon. At such times, a young player like Caicedo could bring much-needed energy to Liverpool’s pivot.

In summary, Caicedo would be a great signing for Liverpool, he is young, versatile and has the potential to improve and become a great player in the future. But since his heart is presently set at the Seagulls, we need to find ways to lure him away from The Amex.
