Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Premier League leaders Arsenal are the “latest club” to express interest in Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo.
The Gunners have already signed two players in the January transfer window, Leandro Trossar from Brighton and Jakub Kiwior from Italian club Spezia.
There have been rumors that midfield and forward are the two positions Mikel Arteta is still most concerned about.
Despite signing Fabio Vieira in the summer transfer market, The Portuguese midfielder isn’t making as much of an impact as some fans hoped.
And now, Romano has brought a ‘surprise’ by transfer pundits, revealing that Arsenal have reached out to the agent of Brighton midfielder Caicedo to inform him of his interest in the Ecuador international.
Romano wrote in his offside catch digit‘Moises Caicedo now has a new agent so Arsenal are a club that has been kept up to date on the situation. Chelsea have been pushing for weeks and are keen to sign Caicedo. It’s Brighton, they want to keep players.”
Be respected CBSsports Journalist Ben Jacobs recently said Brighton are looking for more than £75m if they sell Caicedo this month.
Jacobs wrote on Twitter: Their CEO, Paul Barber, said the club “understands” if Caicedo wants to move, but won’t sell him in January unless the valuation is met. CFC has a good relationship with Brighton and has tested about 65 million pounds of water.
“The January deal is difficult, especially since Brighton are not under pressure to sell, they will have to pay Caicedo above market value. And Brighton will add Leandro Trossard’s fee before the window closes. maybe.
“Brighton said Caicedo is also very much looking forward to summer’s interest. That’s also why they’re paying so much if he leaves mid-season.
“Nevertheless, Graham Potter is eager to reunite with Caicedo. CFC may have to be patient with limited time left in January. Caicedo has changed agents. It’s just that, and if a deal is struck, the window can be relatively slow.
“Paul Winstanley helped bring Caicedo to Brighton and has already been used internally to assess his potential for success.
“Liverpool’s interest in Caicedo goes back to Independiente del Valle. Due to a complicated situation with his agent and many side costs beyond the transfer fee itself, they have not moved. They said they don’t see value in Brighton’s price tag right now.
“Newcastle are also to watch. The club are looking at more budget midfielder options and are prioritizing creatively minded midfielders over DMs. But they are monitoring the situation.”
And on Tuesday, Caicedo responded to speculation suggesting a move from Brighton, saying: I’m here. I’m so focused on this club that things from outside don’t bother me, and I’m focused here so I don’t lose that focus.
“I try to focus only on clubs that have opened doors for me to play each week.”
