Laura Woods reacts to Chelsea potentially beating Arsenal to Caicedo

Chelsea’s interest in signing Moises Caicedo has raised concerns among Arsenal fans, as it could potentially lead to the Blues hijacking the Gunners’ move for the midfielder.

This scenario reminds Arsenal supporters of a similar situation that occurred in January when Chelsea swooped in to sign Mykhailo Mudryk after Arsenal had been pursuing the Ukrainian attacker for weeks.

The news of Chelsea’s serious pursuit of Caicedo has fueled worries among Arsenal fans, who are understandably concerned about losing another player to their London rivals.

Laura Woods, reflecting the sentiments of many Gooners, has expressed these concerns and highlighted the anxiety felt by Arsenal fans as they contemplate the potential outcome.

Speaking on TalkSport Breakfast, she said: “I’ve got another Chelsea one, apparently they’re keen on Moises Caicedo. Oh for god’s sake…”

Ally McCoist said: “We’re just stripping Brighton of every player they’ve got, it’s terrible. 

Asking talkSPORT chief football correspondent Alex Crook, Woodsy added: “How likely is that one to go through?”

Crook replied: “I think it’s quite likely…”

Woodst then hid her face in a piece of paper.

Just Arsenal Opinion

It would be embarrassing if Chelsea, who does not have European football, could beat us to a top talent like Caicedo in this transfer window.

We have been working on this deal for a long time and we expect the club to seal it in time and not lose him to another suitor.

However, the work is done behind the scenes and we expect the club to be doing all it could to avoid a repeat of what happened in January.

Now the season is over, it’s time for the summer Arsenal quiz from our friends at Dublin Arsenal – It’s always a laugh and helps while away the time while we wait for Arsenal’s first signings to come in!

  1. Why would it be embarrassing? Chelsea have been doing this for years, since they sold their soul to the Russian rouble.
    I think it’s more embarrassing for them, especially when looking at the Mudryk situation.
    Caicedo knows we want him, can offer him CL football and I’m sure he will have spoken with Ben White regarding The Arsenal.

    1. I would be stunned if Caicedo chose Chelsea after his comments about wanting CL football. And you’re right, Chelsea are a joke! I am glad they paid that insane amount for Mudryk in the end and then gave him a 25 year contract!

      As good as he looks though, I didn’t like Caicedo’s actions in pushing for a move, and what’s to say he doesn’t try that with us in a couple of years? E.g. we miss out on CL, and suddenly his new dream is to play for Real Madrid.

      I would like him and Rice, but if I could pick one, Rice for me. Club captain, a leader, very professional, already settled in London and so much EPL experience. Caicedo played only a handful of games in 21/22, so 22/23 was his first season as a starter, and there’s always that chance of a one season wonder.

  2. The season is over and we are still hesitating on a deal I dont know what makes us lazy on every quality player in every season oooh Arsenallll…..

    1. The transfer window doesn’t open until 14th June. To be fair we do not know what discussions or negotiations are happening already, everything you read on here is pure speculation, let’s all be a little patient.

  3. What will be, will be. Chelsea have acted like the excited child in a sweet shop scooping up the pick and mix, hoping that each one is as good as it looks.

  4. Are Arsenal becoming slow or getting complacent taking things for granted, to have by mow not unofficially sealed Moises Caicedo transfer since the season is closed? And make it official when the summer transfer window is opened.
    Just like Liverpool are appearing to be doing currently as they are sealing their pursuit to sign McAlister from Brighton this summer. And who is reported to now having a medical at Liverpool.
    If Arsenal happen to lose their pursuit to sign Caicedo this summer to Chelsea
    i think it will be down to their being complacent. And taking thing for granted they will get Caicedo signed this summer if and when they meet Brighton’s signing valuation to sign him.
    Forgetting that there are hynas lurking around the buses nearby waiting and vety much ready to pounce. And snatch the not yet and dusted kill away before Arsenal face looking to say, what’s the hell is happening?
    But hopefully at the end of it all. Everything in this regard will turnout favourably for Arsenal.

    1. SAA
      I understand your points and those made by others above. We do not know for sure who Arteta and Edu are serious about this transfer window and they have surprised us in the past. The Partey signing was a great example.
      The transfer window opens in a few days so let’s wait and see with fingers crossed that we get the players in that are required

      1. Yes indeed Sue.Who really knows what is going on behind the scenes in the corridors of power.In the meantime speculation takes over big time and feeds off the frustrations of fans.
