Caicedo reveals why he wanted a January move and his Premier League prediction

Moises Caicedo has revealed the reason he desperately wanted to join Arsenal in January and wants them to win the Premier League.

The midfielder was Arsenal’s main target in January, as they wanted to add a new man to that area in their squad.

The Gunners had been hopeful that they would get another Brighton player and tabled several bids for the youngster.

However, they were all rejected and he remained with the Seagulls, who have now handed him an improved contract.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Caicedo reveals:

 “I’d seen a lot of Arsenal before knowing that there was a possibility of me signing for them.

“I watched them and I liked them because they have very young, talented players and some stars but they always have that mindset of wanting more.” 

Asked if he wants Arsenal to win the Premier League, he added:

“Of course. I hope so but let’s see.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Caicedo has been a fine midfielder in England and he certainly can do a job for us if we add him to our squad.

The youngster has delivered top performances in the Premier League and we can make a new approach for him in the summer.

However, now that he has a new deal, he could be more expensive than Brighton wanted in January.

  1. To start with, Arsenal who are at this moment in the run-in of this season have not switched ON to next season’s transfer window mode. For, they are still in the switch OFF mode of the window concentrating seriously on to win this season’s Epl title unfailingly.
    Afterwards, they should switch ON to next summer transfer window mode. And as from then, they could put in bid or bids to sign some new top quality players to further upgrade their first team squad to a quadruple winning team status for next season’s campaign.
    They may put in another bid for Brighton’s Calcium. But I don’t think they will. This is because of the likely exubitant transfer fee which Brighton could charge before they’ll allow him to leave..

  2. This Brighton club is very shrewd when it come on to selling their players.

    It is going to take a huge chunk of the war chest to dislodge Caicedo from Brighton, but the kid has a staggeringly high ceiling that it may very well worth the risk.
