Chelsea considering a €90 million move (Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo) for N’Golo Kante’s replacement.
Chelsea are interested in signing the Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo as N’Golo Kante’s replacement.
A report from Fichajes claims that the Premier League team wants to replace N’Golo Kante with the 21-year-old because of his performance.
At the completion of the current campaign, the French defensive midfielder is expected to leave the team on a free transfer.
Chelsea and Kante are yet to reach an agreement on a new contract as his current one ends in June.
It will be intriguing to see if they are prepared to sell the player in January for a pittance.
Kante is unquestionably a club legend and has given Chelsea many championships. If he leaves the Blues in a month, they will need to properly replace him.
Chelsea’s January wishlist allegedly includes Caicedo. It is uncertain whether Brighton will permit his transfer during the winter transfer window.
Caicedo is a key player for the Seagulls and it won’t be an easy task replacing him in January.
The report from Fichajes claims that Liverpool are keeping tabs on the player as well.
Both clubs need to improve their midfield and Caicedo is one of the best young midfielders in the Premier League. Graham Potter will know all about him, having worked with the player during his time at Brighton.
Chelsea are ready to offer a massive amount of money in order to fend off the competition and convince Brighton to sell their prized prospect. Apparently, they are considering a €90 million move for the Ecuador international midfielder.
That is certainly a lot of money and Brighton should be able to strengthen their squad massively with that kind of war chest. It remains to be seen how the situation develops.
