Liverpool and Brighton have reached an agreement on a substantial £110 million sum for the acquisition of midfielder Moises Caicedo. Renowned football transfer analyst David Ornstein reveals that Brighton orchestrated what he terms an ‘auction’ on Thursday evening, with Liverpool emerging as the highest bidder among interested parties.
In comparison to Chelsea’s offer of approximately £100 million and Bayern Munich’s proposal of £90 million, Liverpool’s bid outshone the competition. The 21-year-old prodigy is now set to engage in negotiations regarding personal contract terms with Liverpool, and a medical assessment is scheduled for the upcoming Friday.
Notably, this transaction establishes a new British-record transfer fee, surpassing the previous record of £106.8 million that Chelsea disbursed to secure the services of Enzo Fernadez back in January. It’s worth mentioning that Caicedo’s journey to this point saw him transition from Independiente del Valle to Brighton in 2021, through a confidential agreement for a four-and-a-half-year term.
