Have Arsenal found the right midfielder to fit Arsenal’s transfer policy at last? (plus video)

Arsenal reportedly keen to add shock Brighton midfielder

Arsenal are interested in bringing in Brighton wonderkid Moisés Caicedo before the transfer window shuts down in less than two weeks’ time.

The midfielder has impressed at the Amex Community Stadium, since his £4.5million move from Ecuador side Independiente.

The 20-year-old has made 12 appearances for his current employers and would be expected to make more, after establishing himself in the first team in the second half of last campaign, and is the pefect age and experience to grow and learn under Arteta’s youth project.

For the majority of summer, the Gunners have been linked to Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans, with the player available on a cut-price deal, as his contract runs out next summer.

However, that has not proved to be a strong incentive for the London side to launch a bid for him. Letting one of their current players go might be the only way to add a further body into their ranks.

Apart from Lucas Torreira, who has already departed for Turkey, no Arsenal midfielder has been seriously linked to a move away.

However, that might change as we edge closer to the end of the transfer window, with Granit Xhaka having previously attracted interest from abroad.

Adding a player of Caicedo’s potential would certainly make the North London outfit a more robust side. The youngster has been praised several times for his strength, size and technical ability, with the latest example coming in his team’s win against Man Utd at Old Trafford.

But Arsenal are not the only club who have registered an interest in the player. Man United themselves have thrown admiring glances at him, alongside Italian giants Juventus and fellow Premier League side West Ham.

Thus, landing him won’t be an easy task.

It is still to be seen whether this news has any serious legs to it. But it only looks like a situation which will gain pace only if someone from Arsenal depart the club between now and the end of the current transfer window.

  1. Sky reporting Man Utd interested
    It would take a huge sum to get Brighton to sell as they are no fools in the transfer market .
    Cannot see it anyway after losing Bissouma to the spuds .

    Can’t say I know to much about him ,but making only 12 appearances in 18 months for the prices being thrown around he must be something special .

  2. Sorry he is not for sale None of the top six would pay what Brighton would want for him cucurella 15 mill sold for 62 mill Moises 4.5 mill = 70mill plus So called smaller clubs will not be exploited into selling player that they have taken the time and effort to find Tony Bloom is Brighton through and through. He like us as fans want to see the club progress and not sell all our good players

  3. Arsenal need Savic and Diaby/Gakpo if theyto move to the next level. Caicedo good player but i don’t think the deal is possible this summer

  4. Interesting time to be speculating on Xhaka moving on given he is thriving in a more attacking role and has been one of our best players in our first two games. But I know he’s not everyone’s cup of tea. For me, if he continues at this level, his leadership will be indispensable for this season.

    I trust Edu and Arteta’s judgement way more than I trust my own but Calceido doesn’t seem to have the profile to back up Partey and that seems a more pressing need than someone to compete with the likes of Xhaka, Lokonga and Zinchenko (and if last nights cameo was any indication, Patino next season)

  5. He was bossing the international stage for Ecuador when 17 yrs. This kid is extremely talented and I couldnt for the life of me understand why Manchester did not go in for him @ £4.5m ! Or us for that matter, but he is a childhood MU fan. But if Arsenal act quicker we can snag him. Our project looks daunting compared to theirs atm. Future worldstar right here.

  6. Yes of course if the guy is a good material Arsenal coaching wouldn’t hesitate to catch in on him, once he will be suitable for our project. Dont look at price tag. Results of convincing nature is our priority.

  7. Good prospect but can’t see him as a Partey replacement as he’s more CM than DM or box to box, and that’s surely not our priority. Will be way overpriced as all Brighton players are, so can’t see us going for him this time around. Qualifies as U21 this season but next he won’t and we need to think about English players with likely departures of AMN and RN making us unbalanced on our quota

  8. I believe Arteta and Edu will sign atleast one player before the transfer date expires, they see the loose ends too,

    Ours signings have been quiet and quick,
    I think 🤔 we’ll sign a backup from Ligue 1,

  9. Its the EPL rules that is stopping us from buying right now other wise we are ready to do any thing in this current market.

  10. The guy is looking great. Far better than Tielemans I think. Let’s go ahean and get him. He’s still young and has room for progress.
    He can play as a CM and DM as per Transfermarkt so will be an ideal replacement for Partey.
