Chelsea have submitted a British record £115 million offer for Moises Caicedo.
UK Sun report revealed yesterday how the Brighton midfielder, 21, snubbed a move to Liverpool as he only wants to join the Blues.
Jurgen Klopp’s club had agreed a fee of £110m for the Ecuadorian star as Mauricio Pochettino looked to have missed out on his top target.
The Liverpool boss confirmed that a deal had been agreed to bring the star to Anfield for a record Premier League transfer fee.
But a deal started to stall as it was claimed that Caicedo was having second thoughts about the move.
Now it has emerged that the South American rejected the deal as he had his heart set on moving to Chelsea.
A wide-range of reports then claimed that the West London giants were preparing another offer to top Liverpool’s to try and get their man.
Now SPORT1 reporter Patrick Berger and Nathan Gissing of the CFC Newspage have claimed that a fresh bid of £115m has been tabled.
Caicedo has taken the Premier League by storm since stepping into the Brighton set-up following a £5m move from Independiente del Valle in his homeland two years ago.
