Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo is desperate to force through a move to either Arsenal or Chelsea before next week’s transfer deadline, according to Daily Mail.

Both clubs have had bids for the 21 year old Ecuador international rejected by Brighton this January.

Chelsea have had a £55million offer for Caicedo rejected by Brighton while Arsenal recently had a £60million bid for the midfielder also rejected by Brighton.

Caicedo is reportedly considering his options with the possibility of submitting a transfer request to secure his dream move to London amid interest from Chelsea and Arsenal.

Caicedo is also concerned he may not get chance to join Chelsea or Arsenal in the  summer as both clubs are actively looking for midfielders now.

It remains to be seen whether Caicedo is in the right frame of mind to face Liverpool in the FA Cup on Sunday.
