Arsenal and Chelsea have made offers for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo in the last few days. But by the looks of it, both London clubs have had their offers turned down by the Seagulls.
Chelsea made an offer worth £55 million while Arsenal’s was a bit higher at £60 million fixed, without add-ons. However, the club is determined to keep their player at least until the end of the season.
Moises Caicedo attracting interest from top Premier League clubs
“He is only focused on Brighton. I understand he has the chance to go to a very big team but I hope he can stay with us until the end of the season,” Brighton head coach Roberto De Zerbi said.
“My opinion is that is the best solution for him and us”.
Liverpool have also been linked with the midfielder, but have not submitted any offer yet. They, alongside Arsenal, are in need of a new midfielder and have identified Moises Caicedo as a suitable addition to their line-ups.
The player has recently taken up new agents and has informed Brighton that he would be open to a new challenge. But their stance is not to sell him during the middle of the season. His performances have made him a very valuable member of the squad, and losing him would be a huge blow to the latter half of their season.
