Highly-coveted Footballer Set to Submit Transfer Request as Chelsea and Arsenal Battle for Signature

Moises Caicedo is reportedly set to hand in a transfer request to Brighton and Hove Albion as he has his eyes set on either of the London clubs interested in him.

In a recent report from The Daily Mail , it has been revealed that Moises Caicedo, the highly-rated Brighton midfielder, is ready to hand in a transfer request in order to force a move to either Chelsea or Arsenal. The report states that both London clubs are currently locked in a battle for the Ecuadorian international’s signature, with Arsenal having had a £60 million bid rejected by Brighton.

Despite the Seagulls’ reluctance to sell, it is believed that Caicedo is desperate for a move before the transfer window closes and is prepared to take drastic action in order to secure a transfer to one of the Premier League giants.

The report also suggests that Chelsea’s recent acquisition of Mykhailo Mudryk from under Arsenal’s nose may be a motivating factor for Chelsea owner Todd Boehly to ensure that his club beat Arsenal to the signing of Caicedo.

It is important to note that Moises Caicedo is set to play for Brighton in their FA Cup fixture against Liverpool on Sunday, but with all the interest and the player’s desire to move, it is possible that we may see significant developments before the match takes place.

The race for Moises Caicedo’s signature is definitely one to keep an eye on as the transfer window draws to a close.
