Newcastle United want to sign ‘incredible’ Liverpool target, PL club demand £80m profit


Newcastle United want Moises Caicedo but Brighton and Hove Albion are only ready to sell the midfielder for around £85m.

The Magpies have had a fantastic start to the season and look to be serious contenders for European football.

The money sure helped, but Eddie Howe did an amazing job when it came to improving players like Joelinton and Miguel Almiron.

Newcastle may well be keen on a huge signing in January to help really push forward in the second half of the season and a midfielder appears to be in demand.

Newcastle United want Moises Caicedo

The Mirror claims Newcastle are keen to sign Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Caicedo.

The Magpies have attacked Brighton twice in 2022.

It was first defender Dan Burn who joined in January before Dan Ashworth eventually moved to Newcastle as director of football.

Caicedo could score a hat-trick for Newcastle, but it won’t come cheap.

Brighton would want around £85m for Caicedo just two years after paying around £4.5m to sign him from Independiente del Valle.

That’s a staggering £80m profit before any sell clauses, with Independiente del Valle surely having some of the future charges.

The report adds that Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United are also likely to enter the race to sign Caicedo in a big deal.

The 20-year-old has been nothing short of outstanding for Brighton and was hailed as ‘incredible’ by Adam Webster last season.

Caicedo has also been in that form this season and was fantastic in the Brighton engine room against Chelsea on Saturday.

£85million would be a huge outlay for Newcastle, but they showed their power of attraction by signing Kieran Trippier, Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak.

Few would want to face a midfielder of Bruno Guimaraes, Joelinton and Moises Caicedo anytime soon and Ashworth may well hope that relations with Brighton are still strong enough to secure a deal in 2023.
