Arsenal Newsnow: Mikel Arteta wants to add a midfielder to the Arsenal roster this month. The team has high hopes of acquiring Moises Caicedo, who has also been targeted by Chelsea and Liverpool
Arsenal Newsnow: If reports from Fichajes are to be believed, Arsenal has high hopes of signing Moises Caicedo before the transfer market closes. The Gunners may try to negotiate a transfer with Brighton, who may be willing to sell if the asking price is low enough. Also keeping watch on the Ecuadorian’s status are Chelsea and Liverpool.
Three of the best teams in the Premier League are vying to sign midfielder Moises Caicedo. Unfortunately, the Ecuadorian national team player will not be able to play now. The Seagulls are reluctant to conduct business, but they will consider a competitive offer. The 21-year-old midfielder has interest from three Premier League clubs: Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool.
Caicedo emerged as one of the most vital central midfielders for Brighton last season. Under Roberto De Zerbi’s direction, he plays the No. 6 position. De Zerbi shares his opinion that he should be kept until the summer. For their part, Chelsea has been the most vocal in their desire to acquire the services of the 21-year-old midfielder before the end of the January transfer window. The Blues intended to make a better offer to the midfielder after Brighton turned down their first offer.
Arsenal Newnow: Arsenal want Moises Caicedo
Brighton is reportedly asking over £100 million to sign him. It might discourage Liverpool from pursuing the transfer. The Reds could wait until the summer transfer window to spend big on a new midfielder if they don’t have enough money now.
After Chelsea showed interest in the midfielder, Arsenal joined the pursuit. To find out whether a trade may happen, they may have also spoken to the player and his camp. The Gunners and others believe that an offer of £75 million is fair for Brighton to consider.
🗣 "Always he jumps and celebrates, except one team. One team every time we score a goal I jump, come back he was sitting there. It was Arsenal. I said that guy likes Arsenal."

Mikel Arteta warned the press that he may search elsewhere for a new midfielder because of his developing worries about Mohamed Elneny. He implied that Arsenal could need to sign a new midfielder during this window if the Egyptian international is out for an extended period.

Will the Gunners get him?
Arsenal’s pursuit of the Premier League title will benefit from the addition of Caicedo. The 21-year-old midfielder may have dropped hints about his future plans by switching agencies. Although he may try to leave Brighton in the summer, he will not be the one to initiate the transfer.
The Gunners are hopeful of acquiring Caicedo because they feel the allure of a large club and the possibility to win the Premier League will tempt him away from Chelsea and Liverpool. As the transfer deadline approaches, the Gunners want to complete the signing of the 21-year-old midfielder.
