Chelsea have yet to make a bid for Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo, despite being heavily linked with the Ecuadorian international. The Blues have been monitoring Caicedo for some time, but they have not yet made an official offer for his services.
Liverpool, on the other hand, have already agreed a deal with Brighton for Caicedo. The Reds are reportedly set to pay £20 million for the 20-year-old, who is seen as a long-term replacement for Jordan Henderson.
It is unclear why Chelsea have not yet made a bid for Caicedo. The Blues are in the market for a midfielder this summer, and Caicedo would be a perfect fit for their style of play. He is a dynamic and athletic midfielder who is good at both defending and attacking.
It is possible that Chelsea are waiting to see if Liverpool’s deal for Caicedo falls through. If Liverpool are unable to agree a deal with Brighton, Chelsea may then swoop in and make their own offer for the player.
However, it is also possible that Chelsea are simply not interested in Caicedo. The Blues have a number of other midfielders on their radar, and they may feel that Caicedo is not the right fit for them.
Only time will tell if Chelsea will eventually make a bid for Caicedo. However, for now, it seems that Liverpool are the only club that has a real agreement in place for the player.
