Arteta still has a chance of signing £80M Arsenal star

Is Moises Caicedo on his way to Arsenal? Fans of the North London side will surely be hoping so, as CBS journalist Ben Jacobs suggests that the Ecuadorian midfielder could be a “great fit” for Mikel Arteta’s squad next season. With Arsenal looking to bolster their midfield options, Caicedo is seen as a top target, and despite serious interest in West Ham’s Declan Rice, the £80 million Brighton star could prove a more affordable alternative.

As the Gunners prepare to face Manchester City in a crucial match in their quest for Premier League silverware, attention is starting to turn to the summer transfer window. Arsenal’s Emirates transfer chief Edu is thought to have been eyeing up Caicedo for some time, and with links to Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha and Brazil’s Vitor Roque also circulating, the midfield could be one area of the squad that sees significant investment.

Caicedo has shown his quality this season for Brighton, impressing under Roberto De Zerbi and ranking as their fourth-best performer overall. With solid defensive abilities and impressive tackling and interception stats, the 19-year-old could be just the player Arsenal need to strengthen their midfield.

Of course, signing Caicedo is not going to be an easy task, with Brighton keen to keep hold of their highly-rated young player. However, with potential interest from Liverpool and Manchester United in Caicedo’s teammate Alexis Mac Allister, the Seagulls may be more willing to do business if the right offer comes their way.

In any case, Arsenal fans will be eagerly anticipating any movement in the transfer market as they look to build a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season. With Caicedo potentially on their radar, there may be cause for optimism that the Gunners can continue their upward trajectory under Arteta’s guidance.
