Brighton keen on keeping their top midfielder.
Brighton determined to keep hold of star midfielder.
According to reports, Moises Caicedo is a player that Brighton are determined to keep hold of this January.
A number of clubs are now attentively examining the 21-year-old midfielder who has recently emerged as one of the best young players in the world of football.
When Caicedo left Ecuador in 2021, he was highly regarded as a young player, so it surprised many when he chose Brighton over clubs like Manchester United. Despite playing fewer than 50 Premier League games, he is making an impression with his consistent first-team football.
Excessive spending Chelsea are enormous fans, which is not surprising given that they not only have former Brighton manager Graham Potter in charge, but also a slew of backroom staff who were instrumental in Caicedo’s development.
- Arsenal agree personal terms with Brighton outcast Leandro Trossard
- Chelsea plan to sign Caicedo and Trossard from Brighton.
- West Ham sign Danny Ings from Aston Villa for £15M
Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Newcastle are all interested in Caicedo and are expected to compete for his signature if and when Brighton show signs of wanting to transfer the Ecuadorian. However, we understand that this is not the case right now.
According to sources, the club does not anticipate any situation this month that would persuade them to even consider a trade. The Seagulls are also in a good position because Caicedo’s contract spans until 2025.
Brighton chief executive Paul Barber revealed at the start of January his side would not be pressured into letting any first-team stars leave.
He said: “We have not offered anyone to anyone and have no plans to. In an ideal world our squad, which is as good as it has been for a long time, will remain intact through the whole of January and we will go into the second half of the season as we are.”
Brighton are dealing with wantaway winger Leandro Trossard, who has demanded to leave the club this month, while they are also planning new contract moves for stalwart winger Solly March and loanee defender Levi Colwill.
