Chelsea target Moises Caicedo is reportedly ready to submit a transfer request to seal his ‘dream’ move amid Arsenal’s interest.
The 21-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge during the January transfer window, but a move has not yet materialised.
The Blues have already seen a £55 million bid rejected from Brighton and Hove Albion for their midfield star, and the Seagulls are unwilling to sell in the January transfer window.
However, should Chelsea return with a higher offer, Brighton may have to reconsider their stance.
Arsenal have submitted a bid for the Ecuador international also, with it believed to be in the region of £60 million.
This is higher than Chelsea’s offer, with Graham Potter aware that there is now high demand for his former player at Brighton.
Now, reports believe that the 21-year-old is willing to play his part to force through a move in January despite Brighton’s stance on a sale.
As reported by Dan Matthews, Sami Mokbel and Simon Jones for the Daily Mail, Caicedo is ready to hand in a transfer request.
Caicedo is said to be considering his options with a possibility of submitting a transfer request.
They continue to state that this could be in order to ‘secure his dream move to London’, with both Chelsea and their city rivals Arsenal interested.
Brighton face Liverpool in the FA Cup on Sunday, with the report continuing to state that there is a possibility of the midfielder missing the clash if he is not in the right frame of mind.
Caicedo is also concerned that he may never get the chance to join Chelsea or Arsneal in the future, with both clubs looking for midfielders in the January transfer window.
It remains to be seen as to whether Caicedo will secure an exit from the AmEx this summer and whether the Blues will submit another bid for the youngster.
Enzo Fernandez has also been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge while Chelsea have seen an offer for Spurs midfielder Yves Bissouma rejected.
