English Chelsea are willing to make a formal offer to sign Ecuadorian midfielder Moisés Caicedo at the end of January. According to the press in that country, the value of the transfer would be around 75 million pounds (about USD 92 million).
Chelsea have shown a real interest in having Moisés Caicedo for 2023. Everything was born as a result of the arrival of DT Graham Potter, who managed the player at Brighton.
The other two clubs that also asked about the situation of ‘Moi’ are el Liverpool y Newcastle. But after knowing the value, the interest of both would have lost steam.

The time is short. And it is that the book of passes in the Premier League closes next January 31. After that date, teams cannot register players.
As published by the newspaper The Sun“Caicedo attracts Chelsea for its dynamism and technical quality. He has established himself well in the Premier League since he joined Brighton from Independiente del Valle two years ago.”
In 2022, the Ecuadorian jewel was a key piece in his club. The aspect of his game that stood out the most was his passing effectiveness (almost 90%).
Therefore, it has piqued interest one of the most powerful in England, who are willing to pay millions of dollars for his pass.
Ben Jacobs, an English journalist who covers Brighton information, said that the team’s sporting director, Paul Barber, has decided not to sell Caicedo in January, “unless the proposal reaches 75 million pounds.”
Through his Twitter account, the journalist added that there is a good relationship between the two clubs, with which Chelsea will put on the table 65 million pounds (about USD 80 million).
“Graham Potter is eager to meet with Caicedo. Chelsea may have to be patient, even with little time left in January. The player just changed agents and if an agreement is reached, it could be relatively late,” Jacobs explained.
The truth is that the London club’s interest in signing ‘Moi’ is real. And both his coach and his leaders will do everything possible to make the transfer.
If Brighton and Chelsea reach an agreement for those values, the signing of Caicedo would become the most expensive of an Ecuadorian soccer player in all history.
In various statements to the press, Caicedo, 21, has insisted that he has no knowledge on the subject and that for now he is focused on Brighton.
