Caicedo ready for Premier League top flight

Rumors have been swirling since the end of the summer transfer window that Liverpool would move for Caicedo.

The Brighton man has impressed in the Premier League this season and looks set for a big future.

At this point though, some of the other teams mentioned seem to be way ahead of Liverpool here.

First, there’s the obvious connection between Caicedo and new Chelsea manager Graham Potter. Potter is obviously a key figure in the youngster’s career so far and the coach praised him in the recent past, calling him “fantastic”.

It’s no exaggeration to say that Caicedo would jump at the chance to work with Potter again, at a bigger club.

However, there is bad blood between the two clubs. After pursuing and signing Marc Cucurella in the summer, Chelsea then poached all of Brighton’s backroom staff along with Potter in September.

This could potentially make negotiations difficult.

Then there’s Newcastle, who recently appointed former Brighton technical director Dan Ashworth as their new sporting director. Ashworth is likely to dominate the South Coast club’s purse-string managers.

So maybe Liverpool would be wise to stay out of this one. There’s no doubt that Caicedo is a top talent with room for improvement. But in the Reds’ current situation, they need slightly more established players. At £85m, Caicedo may not be worth the cost.
