Alan Hutton has claimed Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo would likely be keen to join Liverpool to play under Jurgen Klopp.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Tottenham and Aston Villa defender suggested Caicedo, 20, would be a welcome addition at Anfield.
According to the Mirror‘s Tom Hopkinson (10 September), Brighton are preparing to offer their midfielder a new contract.

The Seagulls are said to be looking to bring the Ecuador international’s wages closer to other first-team regulars.
Caicedo’s current deal at the AMEX Community Stadium expires at the end of June 2025.
The Reds were heavily linked with a move for Caicedo in the final days of the summer transfer window.

When asked if missing out on Caicedo would be a blow for Liverpool, Hutton said: “At this moment in time, yes.
“I think he’s a really good player.
“Obviously you see the style that Brighton play I think that would suit a player coming to Liverpool. They like to play with the ball and Liverpool, at this moment in time, need midfield reinforcements. It’s there for everybody to see. It’s no sleight on the players that are there, it’s just that they need help in the midfield.
“You can understand Brighton wanting to offer him a new contract. Still, that lure will be there to play for Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp. They’re still going to challenge, yes they’re going through a sticky period at this moment in time but you don’t become a bad team overnight. They’re full of quality players, international players. So it’s probably something that he thinks that he would fancy a bash at.“
