It has been claimed that Brighton have moved to try and deter Chelsea from making a transfer move for Moises Caicedo

With the transfer window drawing to a close over the summer – there was a shock move from clubs to try and acquire the services of Caicedo -as the club to add some more depth to his squad

But – it has been claimed in the media that the likes of Arsenal are ready to delve into that transfer kitty and try to sign the midfielder in the coming windows – especially as Mikel Arteta seeks to improve his side

However – Brighton are set to enter contract talks with Moises Caicedo as they look to fight off interest from other Premier League teams, according to The Mirror.

Brighton are determined to keep the Ecuadorian for the long-term but must resist the interest from the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.

Former Liverpool striker Michae Owen had plenty of praise for Ecuadorian Caicedo, a player who was heavily linked with a move to Anfield in the summer transfer window but stayed on the south coast.

What has he said?

Speaking to Premier League Productions, Own said: “I like this lad. I think there are a lot of teams looking at him. There were rumours that he could be one of the next big-money buys or sales from Brighton’s perspective.

“That’s the reason why (goal against Leicester). It was a really assured finish and performance.”
