In Monday’s Liverpool news round up, we cover reports from a Merseyside journalist on where the Reds expect Moises Caicedo to end up, as well as claims that the Reds have drawn up two separate transfer “lists.”
Liverpool “expect” Caicedo to join Chelsea
Caicedo has been linked with a move to Anfield either in the January transfer window or in the summer, though there are contrasting claims over interest.
Sky Sports maintain that Liverpool would pursue a deal for the 21-year-old, but sources on Merseyside are insistent there have been no efforts to bring the player in.
Lynch adds that “if FSG does not depart from its ridiculously strict financial principles, there will be no midfielder in January.”
While that line reads more like opinion, rather than new information, the suggestion is that a big-money deal for a player like Caicedo, who is touted as worth over £60 million, can be ruled out this month.
Liverpool drawing up 2 lists of targets?
- Speaking on The Anfield Wrap, GOAL’s Liverpool correspondent Neil Jones says he’s been told Liverpool have two lists of transfer targets, the Champions League qualification list and the non.
- The Times‘ Paul Joyce maintains that Wolves‘ Matheus Nunes is a target for the summer window, following the midfielder’s cameo at Anfield on Saturday.
- According to Football Transfers, Liverpool have held talks to sign Khephren Thuram of Nice and Kouadio Kone of Borussia Monchengladbach.
