In another twist to this ever-moving transfer saga, Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo has reportedly made a decision on his next move.
It’s been described as “the most incredible transfer saga of the summer” by Fabrizio Romano and we couldn’t agree more.
After weeks of speculation, it looked like the saga was over as Liverpool agreed a British record transfer fee of €127 million with Brighton for the Ecuador international.
Romano himself said on Sunday night that Caicedo would become a Liverpool player on Friday if ‘everything goes to plan’.
And on Monday, Jurgen Klopp confirmed a deal had been agreed at his latest press conference.
