According to CaughtOffside, Brighton are demanding Chelsea pay a fee of £100million for the transfer of 21 year old midfielder Moises Caicedo.

Chelsea are hoping to reinforce the midfield department this month and have identified Brighton’s Ecuador international as a potential option.

The Blues have already had a £55million offer Caicedo rejected by Brighton, who are reluctant to lose the midfielder.

Caicedo, who joined Brighton in February 2021, is under contract until the summer of 2025.

Chelsea have identified Caicedo as a possible replacement for N’Golo Kante, who has been a long-term injury absentee this season.
