Fans gobsmacked Liverpool, Chelsea and Man U target is Brighton’s lowest earner

Jaws are dropping all over town as fans realise that Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United target Moises Caicedo is Brighton's lowest-paid player.

The Ecuadorian midfielder, who is making a measly £3,500-a-week, has been earning rave reviews on the south coast since joining the Seagulls last year and has particularly impressed after stepping in to fill the shoes of Yves Bissouma – who joined Tottenham over the summer.

But top performances and a paltry wage are a dangerous mix and Brighton ought to be mindful Caicedo doesn't get his head turned amid interest from such elite (and wealthy) clubs.

For context, Caicedo is earning just 6% of Danny Welbeck's wage, 4% of Adam Lallana's, and just over 10% of the average wage in the entire squad. In response to the stunning revelation, fans on social media have been clamouring for their club to make a move for the midfielder.

"Caicedo's wage is insane! Snap him up Jurgen," one Liverpool fan tweeted. "Give Caicedo the money @ChelseaFC," one Blues fan commented.

"How is Caicedo earning so little? Reckon we should nab him," tweeted an Arsenal supporter.

Caicedo was heavily linked with a move to United prior to joining Brighton, while reports suggested the Red Devils considered another approach for the 20-year-old after watching him inspire Graham Potter's side to victory at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season.

Liverpool meanwhile are desperate for some fresh blood in midfield – and with Naby Keita's recent injury their need is greater than ever now – while Chelsea are in the market for N'Golo Kante's long-term replacement.

Arsenal are also weighing up an approach for the youngster should their move for Leicester's Youri Tielemans fail to materialise.
