Chelsea make fresh bid to sign Moises Caicedo
Chelsea have made a fresh bid to sign Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The west London giants are determined to land a new defensive midfielder, and they have identified Caicedo as the top target.
Talks have been ongoing with Brighton for the 21-year-old for several weeks, but they have yet to convince them into a deal.
The Blues recently made a fourth bid of £80 million without add-ons for Caicedo, but the offer was immediately rejected.
Brighton owner Tony Bloom has set an asking price of £100 million for the midfielder, and he is reluctant to accept anything less.
The South Coast outfit have taken the recent deals for Declan Rice and Enzo Fernandez as a reference for their price tag.
The club believe Caicedo is as valuable as the duo, and they have no plans of reducing their valuation over the coming weeks.
Caicedo is eager to join Chelsea in the summer transfer window, but he has no plans of submitting a transfer request for now.
