Moises Caicedo reportedly having ‘second thoughts’ about joining Liverpool this summer amid interest from Chelsea

Moises Caicedo reportedly having ?second thoughts? about joining Liverpool this summer amid interest from Chelsea
Brighton midfielder, Moises Caicedo is reportedly having second thoughts about joining Liverpool despite the Reds hijacking Chelsea’s plans with an £111million bid.

Liverpool have agreed on a British record transfer fee in the region of £110million for Caicedo as the Reds look to shore up their midfield on the eve of the new season.

The 21-year-old has been on Chelsea’s radar and the Blues, who will take on Liverpool in both sides’ Premier League opener on Sunday, were thought of as front-runners to sign the Ecuador international.

But Brighton have held firm in their valuation of a player who joined them for just £4m from Ecuadorian side Independiente del Valle two years ago and now the Reds are now poised to sweep in.

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp even confirmed that the club’s bid had been accepted with the player looking destined to become a Liverpool star this summer, but now Sky Sports have claimed Caicedo is not totally convinced about heading to Anfield.

Reporter Dhamesh Sheth said the player was having ‘second thoughts’, with Caicedo and his representatives still in London ahead of plans to travel to Liverpool for a medical on Friday.

Sheth previously reported that he was expected to arrive for his medical on Merseyside in the afternoon.

Should Liverpool’s move for Caicedo fall through, it will be the latest blow for Klopp’s midfield plans after failing to get a deal for £50m-rated Romeo Lavia from Southampton over the line.

At his pre-match press-conference ahead of their Premier League season-opener against Chelsea, Klopp alluded to the Caicedo deal being close to completion, but insisted the club did not have ‘endless resources’ despite the deal being a British-record.

‘I’m told I can confirm that the deal with the club is agreed, whatever that means,’ he said.

‘We have not endless resources, but we had a few things happen this summer that we didn’t expect. Hendo, Fab going.

‘Let’s see what happens and then we go from there. I don’t know [if there is a medical today].

‘Let’s talk about that if these kind of things happen, I really can’t say about that, that’s the truth.’
