Brighton reject Chelsea's £80m bid for Caicedo

Brighton have rejected a second, increased offer from Chelsea for midfielder Moises Caicedo worth £80m.

Last week the Seagulls snubbed a £70m offer from Chelsea for a player they value in the region of £100m.

One source had told Sky Sports News that Brighton value Caicedo, who was signed from Ecuadorian club Independiente del Valle for £4.5m in 2021, in the same bracket as Arsenal's record-signing Declan Rice and will look to get in the region of £100m for him.

It is thought Chelsea were getting encouragement that the 21-year-old would join them if a deal can be agreed between the clubs, with personal terms not expected to be a problem.
