Chelsea expected to approach Brighton over midfielder Caicedo


Share post:

Chelsea are expected to formally approach Brighton over the signing of midfielder Moises Caicedo once a number of outgoing deals are finalised.

The departures of Kai Havertz to Arsenal, Edouard Mendy to Al Ahli, Hakim Ziyech to Al Nassr and Kalidou Koulibaly to Al Hilal are understood to be very close.

Chelsea have already agreed a £30m deal to sell Mateo Kovacic to Manchester City as the clear-out at Stamford Bridge continues.

They also remain in talks with Villarreal over the signing of forward Nicolas Jackson.

Sky Sports News has been told Chelsea are prepared to pay the €35m release clause but are exploring a structured outlay.

It’s thought Villarreal want the majority – if not all – paid up front. Personal terms are not expected to be a problem.

Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg reports that Kai Havertz is keen to join Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side.

Kai Havertz could soon become one of the Premier League’s most expensive signings of the summer transfer window despite enduring a difficult season with Chelsea.

Arsenal are close to agreeing a £65m deal for the German after a three-year spell at Stamford Bridge during which he has struggled to find consistency following his £75m arrival from Bayer Leverkusen.

How would Havertz be remembered at Chelsea? Which club would be getting the better end of the deal? And what are the qualities that make him so appealing to Arsenal and Mikel Arteta?

Sky Sports’ Joe Shread and Nick Wright tackle the Chelsea and Arsenal angles respectively.
