Moises Caicedo ‘agrees personal terms’ with Arsenal but Chelsea still lurking

According to reports, Moises Caicedo has reached a consensus on his personal conditions with Arsenal. However, Chelsea is still attempting to disrupt the agreement and secure the player for themselves.

During the January transfer window, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta approved a bid exceeding £70m for Moises Caicedo, setting a new club record.

However, the deal did not materialize, as Brighton declined to sell the Ecuadorian midfielder, even after he publicly expressed his desire to leave.

While Brighton is interested in retaining him for the upcoming season, they are willing to let him go if they receive a suitable offer

. Arsenal remains interested in signing Caicedo for the 2023-24 season, and recent reports indicate that they have reached an agreement regarding his personal terms.

Arsenal is yet to enter into negotiations with Brighton regarding the transfer fee for Moises Caicedo, as Brighton is expecting a minimum of £80m for the 21-year-old player.

Despite this, Chelsea remains in contention to sign Caicedo and is reportedly willing to offer a higher sum to Brighton than Arsenal. Caicedo is scheduled to hold discussions with Chelsea in the coming days to gain insights into Mauricio Pochettino’s project.

However, Caicedo’s primary desire is to play in the UEFA Champions League, and since Chelsea will not participate in the competition next season, it is believed that his priority is to join Arsenal.

Caicedo’s agent Manuel Sierra recently hailed Arsenal as a ‘great club’.

“Arsenal is a great team for everyone; let’s see what happens in the summer, there are many clubs keen on Moises,” he told Arsenalinformer.

“Moises has four years left on his contract. He’s having an incredible season, so it’s normal that there are many clubs interested in him.

“There aren’t many other midfielders so young and talented around Europe. I believe he can really improve in every aspect of the game. He can slot into any [team] as he is ready for it all. His dream is to play in the Champions League and to reach as far as he can in football.”
