Moises Caicedo has inched closer to joining Chelsea in a deal worth over £80 million after agreeing to the contract offer from the Blues.
According to a report by Football Insider, Moises Caicedo is closing in on joining Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
The Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder has verbally agreed to the West London club’s contract offer.
And a deal will set Chelsea back by over £80 million.
The 21-year-old only became a regular for Brighton & Hove Albion in the second half of the 2021/22 season.
The Blues hold a long-standing interest in the young midfielder and tried to sign him in the January transfer window.
But Brighton & Hove Albion held on to their prized asset and got him to sign a new deal.
Widespread reports have suggested Brighton will ask for over £80 million to part with Caicedo’s services.
Meanwhile, Chelsea and Arsenal have shown interest in him again this summer, with the former leading the race to sign him.
Recent reports have also claimed that Chelsea will likely offer around £80 million to secure Caicedo’s services.
And Fraser Fletcher of Football Insider has revealed that the 21-year-old has verbally agreed to Chelsea’s contract offer.
So the Blues are closing in on signing the youngster this summer.
It will be interesting to see if the West London club can wrap up the agreement for Caicedo soon to make him the next marquee signing after Christopher Nkunku.
