Brighton Star Midfielder Becomes A Major Target For Arsenal

Arsenal are reportedly weighing up a potential £75million bid for young Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo.Caicedo, 21, has been one of the breakout stars of the Premier League season, starting 18 of Brighton’s 19 league fixtures to help his side up to sixth.The talented central midfielder has already earned 28 caps for Ecuador and collected valuable experience at the Qatar World Cup, where he scored against Senegal in the group stage.Brighton have rejected some serious bids already this month, and while they have reportedly set Caicedo’s price at nine figures, Arsenal are prepared to test how much money they are willing to turn down.

According to Fichajes, Arsenal are determined to add reinforcements before the end of January, and they will see if £75m is enough to pry Caicedo away from Brighton.Metro had previously reported Brighton would hold out for a fee in the range of £100m, having already batted away a £50m approach from Chelsea.Fichajes believes Arsenal are willing to outspend Chelsea in the pursuit of Caicedo, which has them in the driver’s seat if Brighton are willing to budge before the transfer window closes.
