Report: Arsenal now interested in Brighton star Moises Caicedo

Arsenal are interested in Moises Caicedo this summer, but the Sunday Mirror (14/8; page 76) suggests that Manchester United and West Ham also want the midfielder.

The Gunners may be one team to watch in the final stages of the transfer window. Mikel Arteta’s men have done a lot of excellent business this summer. But it does appear that they remain open to adding the icing on the cake at some stage.

And one area they may well strengthen further is in midfield, particularly with new signing Oleksandr Zinchenko starting the season at left-back.

So perhaps there may be a late move for the Brighton star.

According to a report from the Sunday Mirror (14/8; page 76), Arsenal want Caicedo. Meanwhile, there is also interest from the Hammers and Erik ten Hag’s men. Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen are also keen.

The Seagulls only paid £4.5 million for the Ecuador international. But obviously, they would be able to command a huge sum now. And they will feel under little pressure to sell with both Yves Bissouma and Marc Cucurella leaving.

Arsenal interested in Moises Caicedo

It is hard to see Caicedo leaving this summer. Brighton have shown that they are not afraid to dig their heels in when they have an asking price. And obviously, the deadline is looming.

Caicedo has really shone on the south coast. Graham Potter has said that he is ‘fantastic‘. And he is only 20 years of age. So his ceiling could be incredibly high.

Certainly, it is much easier to imagine Caicedo attracting substantial bids in January or next summer. Having said that, Manchester United cannot let this window close without new additions.

And that may prompt Arsenal to make a move of their own if ten Hag targets Caicedo.
