After battling it out for the transfer of Mykhailo Mudryk, Arsenal & Chelsea are set to go head-to-head in the market yet again and this time for Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo.
According to the Evening Standard, the Gunners will rival the Blues for the Ecuadorian midfielder next summer after Chelsea failed to convince Brighton to let him leave this month.
Brighton have reportedly rejected two bids of around £60million from Chelsea in January as they remain confident to keep the player to at least the end of the season.
The Seagulls had quoted a fee of around £75m, which should be enough to convince them into a sale this January but Chelsea are reluctant to meet those demands.
