Moises Caicedo appears to have expressed his disappointment at missing out on a last-minute move to Liverpool. After suffering injuries to players like Thiago and Naby Keita early in the season, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp reconsidered the necessity for additional midfielders. One of the players named was Moises Caicedo of Brighton, who was the subject of a £42 million bid for the young Ecuadorian, but the 20-year-old is still playing at the Amex Stadium.

Arthur Melo, a Brazilian international, was instead acquired by Liverpool on loan from Juventus with the possibility of a permanent transfer. However, others believe Moises Caicedo has signalled that he might have been open to the move by following several Reds players on social media.

Moises Caicedo has followed a number of players, including Virgil van Dijk, Naby Keita, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, and Thiago. However, it is unclear how many of these players were followed after the Liverpool connections became known. It’s interesting to note that the midfielder also follows Arthur, and social media fan accounts noted that he enjoyed Arthur’s Juventus farewell video.
The former Independiente del Valle midfielder continues to follow some of his Brighton teammates as well as athletes from Manchester United and Real Madrid. Prior to joining Brighton in the middle of the 2020–21 season, Moises Caicedo had previously expressed his love for United. Moises Caicedo stated in December 2020, as reported at the time by OneFootball, “My dream is to play at Manchester United because I like English football.
While all is going on, Arthur has already spoken candidly about his new challenge since relocating to Anfield. The former Barcelona player told Liverpool’s official website, “I’m very, really thrilled to be here wearing this fantastic shirt with this iconic badge that means so much in world football, it’s a dream.
Liverpool has a storied football past. I’ve played against Liverpool, and I know what it’s like to be in the stadium with the people behind them,” he remarked, alluding to the 2019 Champions League semifinal, in which the Reds overcame a 3-0 first-leg deficit to defeat his Barca team 4-0 at Anfield.
“I was on the other side; now that I’m on the good side, I’m incredibly happy. It’s a large club with outstanding players, and the management is amazing. It’s a dream to be here, as I already stated.
The 26-year-old is anticipated to play for Liverpool against Everton in the Merseyside derby on Saturday. Jordan Henderson is the most recent player to be sidelined due to injury, and there’s a good chance Jurgen Klopp will give the new acquisition his first minutes at Goodison Park.
