Brighton key midfielder Moises Caicedo, who ‘wished’ for an escape from the club in a public social media message during the season, got his wish. His club, Brighton, had a lot to smile about. They hit the “jackpot” with a £115 million transfer fee.
On the 14th (KST), TeamTalk reported, “Chelsea have completed the signing of Ecuadorian midfielder Moises Caicedo from Brighton. The transfer fee is £115 million. He will undergo a medical next week,’ the report said.
The 21-year-old was a key part of Brighton’s breakthrough last season. He is a powerful midfielder. With an even mix of power and pace, he has a lot of movement and is very balanced in the air. He was one of the top midfielders in the EPL last season.
However, he does have a problem with running. During Brighton’s run of form last season, he took to social media to say, “I love Brighton and I’ve always tried my best. I was born the youngest of 10 siblings and came from a poor family. I want to be the best soccer player in Ecuador’s history and I’m proud to leave a record transfer fee at Brighton to help the club succeed.
At the time, Chelsea and Arsenal were actively pursuing a move for Caicedo. However, once the message went public, Brighton cracked down hard. They excluded him from team training and made it clear to Arsenal and Chelsea that there would be no in-season transfers. However, they were unable to keep hold of the player. Brighton eventually made a move, with Chelsea offering a whopping £115 million.
‘Chelsea and Brighton have agreed a transfer,’ said TeamTalk. Kaysedou is expected to be in a Chelsea shirt next week.
Caicedo is contracted to Brighton until 2025. He joined Brighton from Ecuadorian side Independiente del Valle in 2021 for £4.5 million. In five years, he has more than doubled in value. 파워볼사이트
