ARSENAL AND MOISES CAICEDO TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are going to make a bid for Moises Caicedo in the January transfer window. The report also claims that the Gunners will make a 60 million bid for the midfielder. However, Brighton are demanding at least 75 million to sell him in the January transfer window. The report also claims that Brighton are in no hurry to sell Moises Caicedo. Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi has also said that he would like to keep the midfielder till the end of this season.
Hence, it is clear that Arsenal are in for tough negotiations with Brighton in the January transfer window. The midfielder is also open to a move to the Gunners. Hence, personal terms should not be a problem for the Premier League giants. However, the report also claims that the midfielder will not force a move away from the club. This is because he has great respect for the club and the fans. Therefore, he is also happy to stay with the Seagulls till the end of the season.
CHELSEA AND NEWCASTLE UNITED ARE ALSO MONITORING THE SITUATION
The report also claims that Chelsea and Newcastle United are also showing interest in Brighton. However, they have not made a bid. This is because, at the moment, the deal is too expensive for the Magpies. Whereas, for Chelsea, they are focusing on the deal for Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandes. Hence, the Enzo deal is likely to cost them 135 million. However, the report also claims that the Blues have Moises Caicedo lined up as an alternative signing.
The report also claims that Arsenal are also focusing on signing Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans in the January transfer window. It is because his contract is expiring in the next summer transfer window. Hence, the Foxes are ready to accept 25 million bids for the Belgian midfielder. Therefore, it looks like Moises Caicedo will get his big move in the next summer transfer window. There is also a chance that Brighton might accept a bid in the range of 60-65 million in the next summer transfer window.
However, it is clear that Arsenal have no intention of getting involved in the bidding war with other rivals for Caicedo. Although, for the moment, the Gunners will depend on the likes of Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka in the midfield department. However, a new signing is required to add depth and freshness to the squad in the January transfer window.
