According to journalist Rudy Galetti, Mauricio Pochettino’s main target Moises Caicedo have agreed personal terms ahead of his potential move to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Galetti told GIVEMESPORT: I was told in the past that Pochettino wants the Ecuadorian midfielder. He’s the main target for the new Chelsea manager.

“Chelsea, in these last days, have been a little bit more focused on outgoing transfers. After, they will go deep on the Caicedo deal to try to make the last steps.

“No issues on the player side. All terms have already been agreed with Moises, who is keen to join Chelsea.”

As per FBref, Caicedo made 100 tackles in the Premier League, a number only Fulham’s Joao Palhinha (147) could beat. The former Independiente del Valle star also made 56 interceptions, more than any other player bar Declan Rice (63).
