De Zerbi: “I don’t know. If Moisés leaves, we will find another important player. If Moisés stays, I’ll be happy for us. It’s not my problem”.

Brighton has already rejected two bids from Chelsea and the previous bid was supposed to be worth around £80m.
The Seagulls are clear on their stance that they want at least £100m for their player. They are following what West Ham did for Declan Rice when Arsenal were targeting him in the summer.
Fabrizio Romano is saying that Caicedo has sent a ‘clear message’ to Brighton that he wants to leave the club and the Ecuadorian spoke publicly on his desire to sign for the Blues earlier in the window.
Negotiations are going on and at present, Chelsea failed to crack the deal. They have to increase the size of the bid despite the two teams reaching an agreement on the transfer of goalkeeper Robert Sanchez from Brighton to Stamford Bridge.
Brighton are closing in on a deal to sign Mohammed Kudus from Ajax with the club having agreed to a £35m fee for the Ghana international. Meanwhile, they also have to save Mitoma who is now on the radar of Manchester City.
