Deal Agreed: Jacque Talbot shares interesting transfer update for Liverpool fans
Jurgen Klopp has previously stated that Liverpool would finish the second half of the season with the alternatives they presently have in the lineup. And now the Scousers have received information from Jacque Talbot on Moises Caicedo and Arsenal.
It appears that the Reds are willing to let one of their competitors swoop in for rumored target Moises Caicedo in January despite a flurry of activity throughout the English top division.
Jacque Talbot from Football Transfers has just reported on Twitter that Arsenal made a club-record offer for the Ecuadorian on the last day of the transfer window.
Liverpool’s hesitation to invest in Caicedo benefits Arsenal?
We can see Liverpool’s financial decision-makers hesitation given the obvious transfer priority assigned to Jude Bellingham. It is quite perplexing that the club is unwilling to make any investment at all, even with relatively cheaper alternatives, given how a probable lack of Champions League football may constrain us in that area.
For instance, given that Sheffield United are in dire need of immediate cash, why aren’t we looking more closely at a prospective trade for Sander Berge, a player Jurgen Klopp is still believed to admire? We have complete trust in the team we have, but it seems like we’re taking a chance on the health of both Stefan Bajcetic and Naby Keita, the effect of returning players throughout the field, and the resurgence of either Fabinho or Jordan Henderson.
Liverpool’s expensive option in the next window
Given the evidence from the teenager’s World Cup performances and his successful Dortmund career, £130 million would still seem like a fair price to pay for a player who could anchor our midfield for at least the next ten or so years.
Madrid and Manchester could seem like the more enticing possibilities right now, but we’d expect Bellingham and his advisors would also take into account the club’s general situation and the potential of the Liverpool project.
