Newcastle interested in coveted Arsenal target but price is an issue

Newcastle United has joined Arsenal in showing interest in Moises Caicedo, the talented Ecuadorian midfielder who continues to attract attention in the transfer market.

During the January transfer window, Arsenal had a strong desire to secure Caicedo’s services, but Brighton, his current club, made it clear that he was not available for sale.

Although Arsenal eventually signed Jorginho on loan as a temporary solution, they are still looking to strengthen their midfield in the upcoming transfer window, with Declan Rice being their primary target.

It is now possible that Arsenal will pursue both Rice and Caicedo simultaneously before the start of the next season. However, Newcastle United has emerged as a competitor in the race for the Ecuadorian midfielder.

Newcastle is attracted to Caicedo due to his young age and impressive performances. However, The Northern Echo suggests that the transfer fee required to secure his signature, estimated at around £70 million, might put the Magpies off.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Spending money on new players is where you differentiate the big boys from the other teams in England.

Newcastle may have qualified for the Champions League, but it does not make them a team that will beat us to sign a player and we still have a good chance to land Caicedo.

  1. Please God, let us get Caicedo, even if it’s at the expense of not getting Rice. He’s better at defending than the Hammer’s captain; and add far as attaching, I would rate them about the same. PLUS, Brighton play in the same style as Arsenal so Caicedo will fit right in with tactics and style of play, whereas Rice might take some time to bed in to how Arteta wants him to play.

      1. Aronn, Interesting that you thank auto correct, while at age 71, I thank my personal education, learned by reading and writing, countless decades before the world heard the phrase “social media or textspeak”!

  2. I am sure, given a choice, Caicedo will sign for Arsenal over Newcastle. I had heard rumours that he has already agreed to personal terms with Arsenal.

  3. If arsenal can sign Moise caceido to add to there midfield, I believe caceido can play arsenal game because Brighton are also playing the same pattern with arsenal and if arsenal can sign him, he will be a good signing.
    And also Declan rice is also needed in arsenal team to make the midfield strong.
    Up Gunner’s.
