Brighton rejected Arsenal’s £60 million bid for Moises Caicedo.
Caicedo, according to the Seagulls, is not for sale this month.
Arsenal, on the other hand, is still interested and is debating whether to make a new offer.
The bid was guaranteed a fee of £60 million. Brighton’s biggest transfer fee in history is the initial £57 million plus add-ons from Chelsea for Marc Cucurella.
Chelsea are also interested in the midfielder – who Brighton bought for £4.5m from Independiente del Valle two years ago – but one source has told Sky Sports News a transfer to the Blues in January seems very unlikely as the clubs are “not in the same ball park” regarding valuations.
Last week, Brighton coach Roberto De Zerbi said on Caicedo’s future: “the best solution is that he finishes the season with us and in the summer he changes teams”.
Caicedo has two and a half years left on his contract – and is unlikely to sign a new one. As a result, Brighton will be doing due diligence on a potential succession plan.
