The Reds have been monitoring Caicedo for the past two transfer windows.

Brighton CEO Paul Barber insists his side won’t sell Moises Caicedo for a cheap transfer fee amid interest from Liverpool.

Caicedo was among Liverpool’s transfer targets last summer, but the Reds weren’t able to reach an agreement with Brighton over his transfer.

The Colombian’s price tag has increased significantly due to his brilliant performances this season. 

Back in August, former Brighton boss Graham Potter joked that Liverpool’s £42m offer for Caicedo would only buy them the 21-year-old’s boots. Barber believes one can put that price tag on Caicedo’s laces now.

“I am not sure £42 million will even include the boots now, maybe just the laces,” he said.

“But joking aside, every player’s value is ultimately determined by the market. Graham’s comments were part in jest but part serious because Moises has been an exceptional player for us.

“Since he came to the Premier League, he has developed all the time. He’s a young man with a great attitude, fantastic work ethic and a very nice human being off the pitch. 

“So all those things contribute to the value of a footballer should it come to that moment to sell.”

He added: “I’m pleased to say we haven’t had any [offers]. Maybe they haven’t got my email because I haven’t seen any.”
