Fear not Liverpool fans

Liverpool have lost in the race to sign Moises Caicedo as the midfielder completed his move to Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp’s side has a British record £111m fee accepted on Thursday and it was widely believed that the Ecuador international would make the move to Anfield however he told the club and his agent that he was only interested in going to Chelsea.

The Blues confirmed his arrival in an emotional social media post on Monday as he posed alongside his mother to recreate an iconic photo they took together back in 2020.

While they’ve missed out on Caicedo and also now look set to lose out on Romeo Lavia after Chelsea agreed a £50m deal with Southampton for the 19-year-old, Liverpool are switching their focus to a cheaper alternative.

According to ESPN NL, the Reds are looking at signing PSV Eindhoven’s midfield star, Ibrahima Sangare.

West Ham United and Nottingham Forest have also been interested in the 25-year-old as well as Bayern Munich and as per 90 min, the Ivorian has a €37m release clause in his contract.
