Chelsea rocked by fresh Moises Caicedo transfer blow as ‘mystery club approach’ Brighton for £100m star

Brighton will play in the UEFA Europa League this season, the first time in the club’s history and are not really under pressure to sell the 21-year-old. He signed a new deal in January after Arsenal saw a bid in the region of £70million rejected for his services.
Chelsea have sold three midfielders including Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic and even though Andrey Santos and Conor Gallagher have shown they can play in the hole, signing the versatile Caicedo is seen as the icing on the cake on what has been an encouraging transfer window for the club.
Brighton manager Tony Bloom has always insisted that the only way he sells the midfielder is when interested clubs are willing to pay £100million for his service, and in Chelsea’s case there was the push to add Levi Colwill to the deal, something the Blues turned down.
Chelsea are expected to return with a fourth bid but what is unclear is if they will qual the £100million they want- the Blues have in the last 48 hours looked at other options including Southampton’s Romeo Lavia who has been linked with a move to Liverpool
