Arsenal makes a £60 million bid for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo.


Arsenal have seen a £60m bid for Moises Caicedo rejected by Brighton.

The Seagulls insist Caicedo is not for sale this month.

But Arsenal remain interested and are deciding whether to go back in with an improved offer.

The bid was guaranteed a £60m fee. The biggest transfer fee Brighton have received in their history is the initial £57m plus add-ons from Chelsea for Marc Cucurella.

Chelsea are also interested in the midfielder – who Brighton bought for £4.5m from Independiente del Valle two years ago – but one source has told Sky Sports News a transfer to the Blues in January seems very unlikely as the clubs are “not in the same ball park” regarding valuations.

Last week, Brighton coach Roberto De Zerbi said on Caicedo’s future: “the best solution is that he finishes the season with us and in the summer he changes teams”.

Caicedo has two and a half years left on his contract – and is unlikely to sign a new one. As a result, Brighton will be doing due diligence on a potential succession plan.
