Brighton boss Roberto de Zerbi believes Chelsea’s interest in Moises Caicedo is “good news” for Brighton.

The Blues are keen on signing the Brighton midfielder this month but have already had a £55million offer rejected by Brighton.

“Caicedo is very important for us,” said De Zerbi, “and I hope he finishes the season with us.

“It’s always difficult to be certain but when big teams want our players, it’s good news for us.

“The best solution is that he finishes the season with us. If he continues to play like this in the last games, it’s possible that in the summer he can leave for another team.”
