Chelsea Launch Fresh Moisés Caicedo Bid as He Misses Friendly for Brighton

Chelsea is preparing a new offer for Moisés Caicedo after the midfielder missed Sunday’s friendly match between Brighton and Rayo Vallecano.

Mauricio Pochettino is determined to strengthen his midfield prior to the start of the new season, and Chelsea, who are also considering a move for Tyler Adams of Leeds, remain optimistic about their prospects of signing Caicedo.

Brighton has rejected multiple proposals for the Ecuadorian international, the most recent worth up to £80 million, and values him at £100 million.

Caicedo’s intention to move to Stamford Bridge strengthens Chelsea’s position, although they have not yet reached that level.

Brighton stated that the 21-year-old was unable to play against Vallecano due to a strained hamstring.

The expectation remains that Chelsea will recruit Caicedo, even if it costs them £100 million to acquire their top target.

After losing Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Mason Mount, the Chelsea club lacks experience and depth in the midfield.

Pochettino utilized the midfield triumvirate of Enzo Fernández, Conor Gallagher, and Carney Chukwuemeka in his team’s 1-1 draw with Borussia Dortmund in their final preseason match.

On Sunday, Chelsea will host Liverpool, and the club has contemplated alternatives to Caicedo.

They are interested in Adams and may activate his £20 million relegation release clause.

Pochettino is a fan of Leandro Paredes, a 29-year-old Argentine international who would provide vital experience for PSG, and Chelsea are still in the running for Southampton’s Roméo Lavia. Liverpool is the frontrunner to acquire Lavia.

Edson lvarez is an alternative for Chelsea, but West Ham are close to signing the Ajax midfielder.

West Ham has offered lvarez $30 million. It is anticipated that they will have to pay between £35 million and £40 million to acquire the services of the Mexico international, who has agreed to personal terms with the east London club.
