The former Independiente del Valle man will add a new dimension to Chelsea’s midfield.

According to the report, “Chelsea are readying a new bid for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo. The Blues have already failed with one offer for the Ecuador international. Caicedo has been the subject of strong interest from Chelsea and Liverpool as the underperforming sides seek to strengthen the centre of their respective midfields. Chelsea have tested Brighton with an initial offer of £55million and the Blues are now considering following that up with an improved bid for the midfield star. Graham Potter’s side are hoping to reinforce their midfield department this month and have identified Brighton’s Ecuador international as a potential option, says the Daily Mail. The Blues boss was the manager who signed Caicedo for Brighton two years ago and is keen on having a reunion with the midfielder at Stamford Bridge.”

Chelsea will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Brighton to the negotiating table. The Blues have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.

Moises Caicedo ideal fit for Chelsea?

Signing the 21-year-old in the winter transfer window would be a masterstroke from Potter.
