The Seagulls rejected a bid in excess of £70million from the Gunners in January, before Caicedo signed a new contract until 2027, with the option of a further 12 months on top of that.
LondonWorld understands Caicedo remains keen on a move to Emirates Stadium this summer, with clubs including Liverpool expected to rival their Premier League rivals for his signature when the season ends.
Arsenal’s summer pursuit for Declan Rice is also expected with the West Ham midfielder hopeful of completing a switch to north London ahead of next season.
“Moises is very happy playing in Premier League as he is now, but let’s see what happens in summer,” Manuel Sierra told LondonWorld.
“He is happy [at Brighton] and grateful to them for having given him the chance to fulfil one of his dreams [of playing in the Premier League].
“He wants to play in the best clubs of the world and to keep playing the best competitions of the world like Champions League, World Cup and in my role I’ll try to support him in all what he needs as I try to do with all my players.”
Sierra also admitted he has had discussions with Brighton over allowing the midfielder to leave the Amex this summer and when asked whether he has spoken with Arsenal technical director Edu over Caicedo, he said:
“I talk with many people about him and other players we represent.”
Caicedo joined the Seagulls from Independiente del Valle in 2021 and has made 48 appearances in all competitions so far, scoring two goals.
