Brighton’s Moises Caicedo Snubs Advance from Arsenal with New Contract
The Ecuador international had been Arsenal’s top transfer target in January, but Brighton were not willing to let him go
Arsenal’s efforts to sign Moises Caicedo have been dealt a huge blow following news of the midfielder’s contract extension with Brighton.
The Ecuador international had been Arsenal’s top transfer target in January, but Brighton were not willing to let him go after losing Leandro Trossard to the Gunners.
Despite releasing a statement expressing his desire to join Arsenal, Brighton stood their ground and even extended his contract until 2027 with the option of an extra year.
This news came as a big relief for Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi, who praised Caicedo’s commitment and resilience:
“This is fantastic news for the club, our fans and most importantly for Moises… It will make us stronger as we move forward towards our targets on the pitch.”
While Mikel Arteta may have had hopes of securing Caicedo in the summer transfer window, it seems that he will no longer have that opportunity.
Nonetheless, Arsenal were able to secure another midfielder in January by signing Jorginho from Chelsea instead.
Caicedo’s team-mate Lewis Dunk hailed the decision of keeping him at Brighton: “I think it’s a massive statement from the club… I think it’s a great statement to show that we want to keep him and I think rightly so.”
