In what's been a busy summer transfer window for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal, it doesn't look like the team is done just yet. Matter of fact, the Gunners could be ready to make one more splash move before the deadline arrives. Could 20-year-old phenom Moises Caicedo be London-bound?
According to multiple reports, Arsenal have strong interest in the Brighton midfielder, who has been an absolute stud since late last season. Caicedo is off to a strong start this campaign and he's generating plenty of interest. This could be a wise move for Arsenal.
Manchester United and Arsenal in a battle for Moises Caicedo
Arsenal aren't the only team showing interest in the Ecuadorian international MF, as Manchester United and West Ham are also keen on trying to get him into their respective lineups. This shouldn't come as a surprise, as Caicedo really has showcased outstanding form.
With Manchester United, the team was interested in potentially signing him before he joined Brighton, but talks fell through at the last minute. This has proven to be a major regret for the Red Devils, as they could have had Caicedo a couple years back at 1/10th of the price. Now, Caicedo is considered one of the most exciting young midfielders in the EPL.
Arsenal clearly loves his game, and it's easy to see why. Caicedo would be a welcome addition for Arteta and with him only being 20 years old, his best football is surely ahead of him. Caicedo is adored by Brighton, so no one knows if they'd even be willing to part ways with him.
Having said that, if the right offer comes in, it could be tough for Brighton to turn something down. Will Manchester United, West Ham or Arsenal be the ones to extend an offer Brighton can't refuse? We should find out soon enough here.
