EXCLUSIVE: Liverpool still keen on Caicedo
The midfielder is searching for a way out of Brighton and is considering all options, while we understand Liverpool remain keen on the youngster, especially as Fabinho and Jordon Henderson have been subject to offers by clubs in Saudi Arabia.
Chelsea are still favourites for Caciedo but they have not met the asking price of Brighton so far and the proceedings are thought to be dragging.
Liverpool are still searching for a midfielder to come in on top of their squad already, with Romeo Lavai thought to be the biggest target.
But if the likes of Henderson, Fabinho, and even Thiago, linked to Barcelona, do end up leaving then it means that the side would not only be short in supply in that area of the pitch, but they would have a boost in their transfer kitty for this summer window.
Caicedo likely to leave
Caicedo is very likely to leave ahead of next season but his current club have been asking for a price close to £100million.
That has been the sticking point so far but as the window nears its end then Brighton may well drop that amount.
Liverpool are also admirers of Levi Colwill, who spent a season on loan at Brighton last season, but a deal seems out of reach given the price.

It comes after Caicedo spoke about his admiration for Chelsea.
"It's a big team, that's true," he told La Cancha Con Majo. "A very historic team and I can't say no because it is a very big, historic, beautiful team. The city as well is beautiful."
