REVEALED: Desperate Moises Caicedo response to Jurgen Klopp’s text messages revealed

Jurgen Klopp attempted to convince Moises Caicedo to join Chelsea with a series of text messages that prompted a pointed response from the all-action midfielder.

The Reds attempted to pull off an audacious transfer coup by hijacking the Blues’ move for Caicedo last week when they tabled an eye-watering £111million bid that would have broken the British transfer record.

Desperate for midfield reinforcements following the surprise summer departures of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, Liverpool sensed an opportunity with Chelsea struggling to agree a fee with the Brighton.

After having their offer accepted by the Seagulls, Liverpool were optimistic they would be capable of convincing Caicedo to join and become an integral part of a new-look side.

Klopp made personal contact with the player but, according to The Athletic, received the bluntest of responses from Caicedo who informed the German he had little interest in moving to Liverpool and had his heart set firmly on becoming a Chelsea player.

Having also been snubbed by Romeo Lavia, who also decided to join Mauricio Pochettino’s side, Liverpool turned their attentions to the signing of Wataru Endo.

The Japan international made his debut as a second half substitute during last weekend’s 3-1 win over Bournemouth and Klopp was delighted with his contribution despite the lack of preparation time.

On Endo’s debut, Klopp said: ‘Horrible [circumstances]. First game, coming in, I think we saw that Harvey [Elliott], who’s in a really good moment, came on in this game as well and was running left and right and the heart rate was 240.

‘Pretty much the same for Endo. The two days he had – no surprise! He did absolutely alright, but he came there and had absolutely no clue what to do.

‘I spoke this morning with him about how, with 11 players, his position would look. A 4-4-1 was not involved in our conversation. That’s it now.

‘I don’t think he slept a lot in the last two nights, so he came on and threw everything he had onto the pitch. That’s it.’
