Brighton have placed a hefty price on their star midfielder Moises Caicedo, reports claim.

The Ecuador star has been in superb form for Brighton since the start of the 2022-23 campaign, and Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool are said to be interested in his signature. 

Chelsea manager Graham Potter is keen to reunite with the player he signed before he joined the Blues. 

However, a January transfer for Caicedo appears difficult at this time because of the enormous fee the Brighton have slammed on him.

Brighton reportedly value the 20-year-old at £85 million, and this is in an attempt to fend off interest from clubs circling around him in January. 

It is important to add that the Seagulls only signed Caicedo for £4.5 million, and will be turning in a lot of profit if they sell him anywhere near the amount that’s is being touted.
