TRANSFER: Brighton Reject Chelsea, Accepts Liverpool’s Record Bid For Moises Caicedo

Liverpool last night have agreed a British-record transfer fee with Brighton for midfielder Moises Caicedo.

The fee is understood to be worth £110m, with the player set to travel to Liverpool on Friday (Today) for a medical.

According to sky Skorts, Brighton had set a deadline for midnight on Thursday for bids to come in and provided their valuation was met, they would go with the highest bidder.

It’s understood Chelsea tabled a £100m bid.

However, Liverpool entered the picture at the final minute and seemingly hijacked Chelsea’s pursuit, outbidding them by £10.

This deal breaks the Merseyside club’s transfer record of £75m for Virgil van Dijk back in 2018.

It also shatters the British record fee, an accolade previously held by Chelsea when they splashed £107m on Enzo Fernandez.

During the January transfer window, Arsenal registered their interest in acquiring the Ecuadorian’s signature. But Brighton’s owner Tony Bloom, held firm and batted off any advances even turning down a £70 bid from the Gunners.
