RUMOR: Nashville SC interested in Déiber Caicedo

Another name has been linked to Nashville SC as an attacking reinforcement: Déiber Caicedo. According to a report from Juan Felipe Cadavid, Nashville are pursuing Caicedo, a 20-year-old attacker currently playing for Deportivo Cali, who has also represented Colombia internationally at the U17 and U20 levels.

Speedway Soccer has previously reported on Nashville’s interest in fowards like Aké Loba and more recently Maxi Romero, and Caicedo definitely fits into that model. As with Romero, Cadavid reports that Nashville are primarily interested in a loan for Caicedo, which fits with their desire to see how a player performs in Nashville before finalizing a permanent move.
