Liverpool have been told that a £42m bid for Moises Caicedo would only be enough to secure the midfielder’s boots.
Reports have suggested that the Reds could try to unravel their midfield crisis by launching a proposal for the 20-year-old.
But Brighton boss Graham Potter said: “In football you never know, but we’re quite calm and assured. You’d probably get his boots for that from the chairman — perhaps! £100m? They will try.
“It doesn’t surprise me that individuals are him because he’s playing at a implausible level.
“As soon as you do research on him you realise he’s a top kid, great person, young, playing within the Premier League, has all of the attributes to play on the very, very highest level.”
