Italian Journalist claims Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo will cost around £90m for Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
The Journalist also points out the fact that Real Madrid were also interested in the Ecuadorian midfielder. Back in January, the Los Blancos even wanted to sign him.
Di Marzio told MyBettingSites:-
“If Arsenal or other clubs will arrive with not less than €80-90 million, they want that money, otherwise Caicedo will stay there. They will lose Mac Allister because he will, I think, go to Liverpool.
“Yes, Brighton got Milner, they got Dahoud but Caicedo is a different player and really, really important.
“If Arsenal will insist and will arrive at that money, this is the moment Caicedo will go. And with Rice and Caicedo, obviously, Arsenal would have an incredible midfield.
“Real Madrid wanted him in January. The only sure thing is that Brighton wants an important fee for him. They are not a club that decides to let players go on a discount. If they decide that this is the fee they want for him, they will have it. Otherwise, the player stays.
“I know De Zerbi thinks that Caicedo can even play for Real Madrid so the consideration that Brighton has of Caicedo is that of a top, top player.”
The 21-year-old is under Arsenal’s for a long time now. The midfielder agreed on personal term with the Gunners on January, but the Seagulls blocked the move. He signed a new long-term contract with Brighton & Hove Albion back in March. However, he will find a new club in the summer.
Arsenal are looking like leading the race for Caicedo but other big clubs such as Liverpool and Real Madrid are also monitoring the youngster.
