‘You’d get his boots for that’ — Graham Potter laughs off Liverpool’s reported £42m interest in Moises Caicedo

Published: 16:40, 30 August 2022

Brighton manager Graham Potter has laughed off suggestions that Liverpool could be signing Moises Caicedo for the £42m that is currently being bandied about.

The Ecuadorian midfielder has certainly looked the part in these early stages of the campaign, forming a formidable double-pivot in the heart of Potter’s midfield alongside repurposed No. 8 Alexis Mac Allister.

The duo have worked supremely well in tandem to help Brighton claim comprehensive wins over Manchester United, West Ham United and Leeds United, as well as securing a respectable point against Newcastle United, with the Seagulls currently fourth in the Premier League table.

Brighton are one of just four sides to already secure a double-digit points tally, alongside Man City, Tottenham and Arsenal, and they have certainly looked good value for their early form, producing authoritative displays in the four games they’ve contested in so far.

Caicedo has been at the heart of Brighton’s early-season purple patch, already registering eight interceptions, the third-highest in the division among midfielders, and as such, Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for the emerging star, owing largely to their own injury issues in the middle of the park.

There have been reports of a £42m bid from Jurgen Klopp’s side for Caicedo, and when questioned about the rumoured bid, Potter offered a whimsical response. He told reporters: “I think you’d probably get his boots for that, maybe, knowing the chairman! It’s not for me to talk about. It is what it is.”

He added: “It doesn’t surprise me that people are looking at him because he is playing at a fantastic level. As soon as you do research on him you realise he is a top kid, great person, young, playing in the Premier League, has all the attributes to play at the very, very highest level. But we know the position he is in and we know the position the club are in, which is why we don’t want to lose him.”
