Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo has opened up about his future.
The Ecuadorian’s impressive displays for the Seagulls have touted him for a big money transfer since the turn of the year. During the January spell, Caicedo issued a statement expressing his desire to leave the club, but Brighton turned down bids of up to £70 million from Arsenal for the 21-year-old, who has seen an accelerated rise since his Premier League debuted at the beginning of 2022.
Liverpool have already signed Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szboszlai to improve their midfield, but have also been tentatively linked with a move from Caicedo. When asked about the future and his thoughts on potential high-profile moves to the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea, the midfielder responded relaxed.

“It’s a very big emotion,” he told journalist Maria Jose Flores via 90min. What man wouldn’t want them talking about him?
“I know how to handle it. I don’t get carried away by emotions. I’m enjoying time with my family for now. There’s pressure, but I’m calm. I’m waiting for whatever God decides. He will know what is the best for me.”
The Telegraph has reported that Brighton are planning to demand more than £100 million for Caicedo, influenced by Arsenal’s impending £105 million move for West Ham United skipper Declan Rice. Chelsea are regarded as leading in the race for Caicedo, although it remains to be seen how Mauricio Pochettino’s side will respond to the Sussex club’s latest demands.
Meanwhile, Liverpool appear to have turned their attention to Southampton’s Romeo Lavis as the Reds assess the need for a deeper-lying midfielder. Either way, Caicedo will be asking for a significant fee as he signed a new contract in March until 2027 with an option for an additional year.
