Latest update on Moises Caicedo's transfer to Chelsea FC
Chelsea fans have been left frustrated with the way Moises Caicedo's deal from Brighton has failed to see the light of day.
The reports from Brighton have also confirmed that Moises Caicedo has expressed his displeasure to the club's hierarchy. He feels that the price the Seagulles are asking Chelsea to pay is extremely ridiculous.
A sports journalist who is based in London, Ben Jacobs confirmed to caughtoffside on Friday, July 21, 2023. He said the player has directly informed manager Roberto De Zerbi and senior members of the Brighton hierarchy that he wants to join Chelsea and that he believes a recently rejected £70m offer was more than fair.
Brighton’s asking price of £100m even though this number has never been explicitly quoted to Chelsea. The Seagulls are looking at the possibility of bringing Levi Colwill in a bid to agree on a deal with who was on loan last season from Chelsea as a possible replacement for Caicedo.
Caicedo has joined up with the rest of his teammates in Philadelphia for a pre-season friendly against Chelsea on Saturday as they prepare for the new season. The Blues supporters will hope that a deal for the midfielder will be agreed before the 2023/24 season.
