Liverpool contact Brighton about Caicedo but Chelsea still frontrunners

Sky Sports News has been told three clubs are interested in signing Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo, with Liverpool having made contact.

Chelsea and Liverpool as well as Bayern Munich are exploring a deal. A resolution - one way or another - could come as soon as this weekend.

If a deal is done, Brighton want enough time to bring in a replacement. Brighton - as it stands - not budging on their £100m valuation.

Caicedo has made it clear to Brighton he wants to leave.

Liverpool have not yet made an offer but are continuing to explore the market for a midfielder but, as has been the case throughout the current window, the strong expectation remains that Caicedo will join Chelsea.

Liverpool are engaging in due diligence and ensuring that if a deal is there to be done they are aware of it, particularly given Southampton's ongoing position on Romeo Lavia.

Chelsea have seen bids for Caicedo rejected by Brighton this summer, with the last totalling £80m. However, the Blues are pushing hard to do a deal, with talks ongoing between the clubs.

One source has told Sky Sports News they want to conclude a deal before the weekend but Brighton, as it stands, are not budging on their £100m valuation.
