Chelsea has prioritised acquiring Moises Caicedo from Brighton
According to journalist Simon Philips, Chelsea has made Moises Caicedo’s acquisition a priority and is considering sending Lewi Colwill back out on loan to Brighton Hove & Albion. Despite signing a new contract with Brighton that runs until 2027, the midfielder is anticipated to leave because Chelsea has revived their interest in him.
Additionally, Mauricio Pochettino has determined that he wants a defensive midfielder for the upcoming season. Robert de Zerbi, the Seagulls’ manager, said that if the transfer market opens, they might lose Caicedo. Arsenal is nonetheless interested in signing the 21-year-old.
The young man made an impression while he was at Brighton and helped the team qualify for the Europa League for the following season. The signing of a player who flourished in the Premier League for a team with less fierce competition will be a significant accomplishment for us. Caicedo, who is only 21 years old, has proven himself this year and helped the Seagulls qualify for the UEFA Europa League.
If N’Golo Kante were to go, it would be important to add players from Ecuador because they play similarly to the Frenchman. Enzo Fernandez, Caicedo, and Manuel Ugarte will make a fantastic midfield, and they will solve the team’s midfield problems for many years if we can also complete the signing of Ugarte.
Even though the costs of the contract may be high, it seems like a safe signing to do. Let’s wait and see how things turn out. Given the player’s age and quality, it wouldn’t be a horrible investment, but it does make you wonder if we are prioritising young above experience.
