Chelsea plan to sign Caicedo and Trossard from Brighton.
Chelsea set to sign Brighton’s pair, Caicedo and Trossard.
On Sunday the Blues unveiled their fourth signing of the January transfer window with the £88million capture of Ukrainian forward Mykhailo Mudryk.
Mudryk joins Benoit Badiashile, David Datro Fofana, and Joao Felix on loan, all of whom joined the London club this month.
De Zerbi has subsequently stated that Trossard can return to the club, but his future remains uncertain, as he has been linked with a move away from the South Coast during this transfer window.

As well as Chelsea, Trossard remains of interest to Tottenham, who are also speaking to Sporting Lisbon about Pedro Porro this week.
The Seagulls reportedly have the option to extend Trossard’s contract by another year once the current one expires at the end of the current campaign.
The Blues are also interested in Trossard’s team-mate Caicedo, however, he is expected not to come cheaply.
After signing Marc Cucurella in the summer and stealing Graham Potter and his staff from The Amex in September to replace Thomas Tuchel, any approach from Chelsea would represent another raid on Brighton.
