Arsenal could be joined by Chelsea, Manchester United & Liverpool in the race to sign Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo

Arsenal could be joined by Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool in the race to sign Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo, according to the Daily Telegraph‘s Sam Dean.

The journalist claims the Seagulls are likely to hold out for “significantly more” than £70m due to the interest being shown in the 21-year-old:

Gunners supporters on Twitter are very much split on whether Caicedo is a realistic target for Mikel Arteta’s side this summer:

Caicedo is not a priority target for Arsenal

While the Gunners are believed to be still interested in the Ecuadorian international, the club are currently focused on snapping up West Ham captain Declan Rice.

The 24-year-old could cost in excess of £100m so finding another £70m+ to sign Caicedo does seem pretty unrealistic.

There is a chance that Caicedo will hold out for a move to the Emirates

The lure of Champions League football could help Arsenal in negotiations. Chelsea don’t have Europe at all next season, while Liverpool are playing in the same competition as Brighton.

Manchester United could, of course, provide Caicedo with the same chance of competing in Europe’s premier competition but their number-one priority at the moment seems to be Mason Mount

For that reason, you can’t rule out a switch to the Emirates, although you do get the feeling that any transfer may have to wait until later in the summer
