We have been hearing for weeks now who Chelsea’s key and priority transfer target is for this transfer window, but we have yet to see any solid moves made by the club to sign him.
That is all about to change, according to top transfer reporter Fabrizio Romano, who has finally confirmed that Chelsea are ready to attack this deal.
The player in question is of course, Moises Caicedo, the midfielder from Brighton who has had all the teams chasing him since January after an incredible season in Premier League football.
Romano says Chelsea are set to open talks with Brighton for Moisés Caicedo with negotiations starting between clubs within 24/48 hours.
Personal terms will not be an issue, but Romano is also not expecting a quick negotiation with Brighton, as they can be tough to deal with.
