Hot gist!!! Chelsea readies another offer for $102m Liverpool ‘target’ as Arsenal transfer saga brewing

Roundup of Liverpool’s rivals: Chelsea is about to intensify its chase of a rumored target, while Arsenal might become embroiled in a transfer crisis.

 

Liverpool received the schedule for the 2019 Premier League season last week, and it will be put to the test right away.

The Reds face one of their ‘big six’ rivals, Chelsea, in their first game of the year. Chelsea will be looking to improve on a poor season in which they placed far below them in 12th.

But unlike Liverpool, they will have a new manager, and Mauricio Pochettino hopes to make a statement at Stamford Bridge to begin the new era.

Just a few weeks later, Jürgen Klopp leads his team to St. James’ Park to take on a Newcastle team who eliminated the Reds from Champions League qualification last year. Before the end of September, the team will also go to Tottenham Hotspur.

Therefore, it is a difficult start for a team that had a difficult time traveling last season, winning just six of its 19 games.

Here, Liverpool.com scans the other major clubs in the Premier League and around Europe to see what news is circulating there.

 

Chelsea is at Caicedo once more

After having a first offer for Brighton midfielder Moisés Caicedo rejected, Chelsea intends to reapply, according to The Mail.

 

According to the source, Chelsea made a $77 million (£60 million/€70 million) offer to Brighton two weeks ago, but the club turned it down because it demanded more than $102 million (£80 million/€94 million).

The Blues will’step up’ negotiations for a contract in the near future, though, as they are still committed to bringing him into their midfield.

It is unclear if they will agree to Brighton’s terms, but Chelsea needs midfielders as N’Golo Kanté, Mateo Kovai, and Mason Mount all appear to be on the verge of leaving the team.

 

According to Liverpool.com, Caicedo was a target for Liverpool according to a report from Sky Sports in April. However, the Reds are likely content to move on to other options.

Liverpool may be concerned that bidders will be charged a premium for other Brighton assets as the Seagulls attempt to recoup some of the money they lost out on after the club’s clubmate Alexis Mac Allister was acquired for just $45 million (£35 million/€41 million). Mac Allister joined Caicedo on the list of nominees for Premier League Young Player of the Season.

From that vantage point, the club might think that the market offers better value elsewhere.

 

Arsenal may experience a Rice snafu.

If a story from The Mail is to be accepted, Arsenal’s pursuit of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice might turn into a bidding war.

 

Arsenal attempted to win the deal with a bid of $128 million (£100 million/€117 million), but it was rejected. Arsenal had also offered $115 million (£90 million/€105 million) with add-ons.

 

The winner of the Europa Conference League is prepared to play the long game since it is aware that Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United are all interested.

As a four-horse race develops, West Ham expected at least one offer from that group in the coming week.

Because of this, there are signs that a “transfer wrangle” will “rumble on.”

According to Sky Sports, Liverpool was also said to be interested in Rice in the spring, but it’s not surprising that Klopp’s team now seems to have dropped out of the running.

After all, it wanted to avoid a nine-figure bidding war when it lost interest in Jude Bellingham and eventually withdrew from the competition (via The Athletic).

The issue is that you can spend weeks trying to sign a player, and by the time the dispute is resolved, you might be left empty-handed and looking for other options. Your backup plans, such as plan B and C, might already have changed by then.

Rice is a fantastic player, but Liverpool might be a little happy not to be in a fight.
