Chelsea are thought to have reached an agreement with Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo on personal terms. The Blues and Seagulls will begin talks as the Premier League clubs work to reach an agreement on a transfer fee for the Ecuador international. Caicedo has been terrific for Brighton over the previous 18 months. He was close to joining Arsenal last January after Albion rejected a £70 million deal from the Gunners.

Fabrizio Romano gives an important transfer update on Moises Caicedo

Caicedo expressed his intention to depart, but the agreement fell through. The 21-year-old stayed, signed an extension with the south coast club. Moreover He went on to play a major role in Brighton finishing sixth. Thus, Brighton qualified for the Europa League for the first time in their history. Caicedo is under contract with Brighton until June 2027. Therefore it is certain that the club would demand at least £80 million for their best player.

Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano says:

“Chelsea are set to open talks with Brighton for Moisés Caicedo as negotiations between clubs starting within 24/48h. #CFC. Personal terms, not as issue — now Chelsea prepared to ‘attack’ the deal. Never easy or fast negotiations with Brighton. Chelsea, on it.”

The potential fate of Chelsea centre back Levi Colwill, on the other hand, could have an impact on the talks. The 21-year-old excelled on loan at Brighton last season, and Albion are keen to sign him on a permanent basis. He made it to the England squad earlier this month. Colwill might be a part of a separate agreement, or he could be included in the Caicedo talks.

Manchester United might compete with Chelsea, as Sky Sports suggesting that the club might have an interest in the Ecuador international. However an offer of over £80 million would be required to convince manager Roberto De Zerbi’s team to part ways with their star player. Uncertainty about the takeover and concerns about Financial Fair Play standards have kept United behind their Premier League rivals.
