The Blues have chased the Brighton midfielder throughout the window and saw three bids rejected.

By the time they readied for a FOURTH offer, Liverpool entered the race as they look to replace Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.

According to The Athletic, Brighton held an auction with a midnight cut-off on Thursday.

Liverpool are said to have outbid Chelsea by £10m, which would make Caicedo a British record signing.

It would top the £107m Chelsea paid Benfica for Enzo Fernandez last January.

Personal terms between Caicedo and Liverpool are yet to be agreed -but not though to be a problem – with a medical planned for Friday.

Brighton already sold Alexis Mac Allister to Liverpool earlier in the summer with Caicedo set for a reunion at Anfield.

Chelsea lost a host of midfielders this summer, including Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic.

And Caicedo was deemed Mauricio Pochettino’s No1 midfield target.

But the Argentine could now turn his attention to Southampton’s Romeo Lavia, who is also linked with Liverpool.

Chelsea have also agreed a £20m deal with Leeds for American international Tyler Adams.

Pochettino’s reign at the Stamford Bridge helm gets underway on Sunday against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
