Chelsea are reportedly prepared to increase their offer for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo to approximately £80 million ($101m). The Ecuador international was previously linked with Chelsea during the January transfer window, but ultimately signed a new contract with Brighton.
A £60 million ($76m) bid from Stamford Bridge for Caicedo’s services was rejected. Chelsea is expected to have significant funds available for transfers, with an estimated £200 million ($253m) set to be generated from player sales, including the potential departures of Kalidou Koulibaly, Kai Havertz, and Mason Mount. It is believed that a portion of these funds will be allocated towards securing the signing of Caicedo.
The 21-year-old Moises Caicedo has impressed in the Premier League last season and still has untapped potential. Arsenal had shown interest, but they are finalizing a record-breaking move for Declan Rice. Chelsea, having lost several midfielders, are also keeping an eye on Lavia, Onana, and Veiga.
