Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo has declared that he would be keen on joining his former manager Graham Potter at Chelsea.
The Ecuadorian international has been linked with the Blues (along with Liverpool and Manchester United) in recent months, and fans on Twitter believe he could be a good addition to the squad:
Sounds like an invitation 😁

Caicedo would certainly add the energy and dynamism that is missing from Chelsea’s midfield when N’Golo Kante is injured. With the Frenchman’s future also in doubt, there is even a possibility that the Brighton star may be considered as a replacement for the World Cup winner.
At the moment, though, any talk about a move is pure speculation. Caicedo will definitely be on the club’s radar, as Potter is clearly a fan (having already stated that he’s worth £100m), but that doesn’t mean a bid will be sanctioned in January or at the end of the season.
Reports have suggested that the Blues’ recruitment department is still keen on recruiting Declan Rice so we shall see who the club will end up pursuing.
