Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has already planned where he wants to play Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo. The report has claimed that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta wants to play Caicedo in an inverted full-back role.
What plans does Arsenal and Mikel Arteta have for Moises Caicedo
Having failed in his push for the Premier League title. All the attention can seemingly now turn to bolstering their already impressive squad. This has to be done in an effort to bridge the gap between themselves and Manchester City.
Arsenal are now in ‘pole position’ to sign Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo, according to reports. The Gunners saw two huge bids rejected for Caicedo in January. With the second offer thought to be worth up to £70 million.
Although many might naturally assume that the Ecuador international will be recruited for the engine room. His recent exploits at right-back under Roberto De Zerbi is suggestive of a fresh idea that Arteta could employ should he tempt him to the Emirates
Only last week, the youngster shone in that role against none other than Arsenal. He won a truly ridiculous haul of 13 ground duels, five of which were successful tackles as he shut down Gabriel Martinelli.
Caicedo’s 89% pass accuracy, 1.2 key passes and 2.8 tackles per game (via Sofascore) offer a vast upgrade on the former Citizens defender. Zinchenko instead has maintained an 88% pass accuracy, 0.7 key passes and 1.5 tackles per game.
Should this potential new man have an impact anywhere near that of Zinchenko in his debut year in north London. He could well be the catalyst for further progress under this stunning regime. Caicedo and Rice seem to be the main players they are after. It looks like a revolution will take place in the midfield of Arsenal this season.
