‘I Understand…’: Fabrizio Romano Speaks Out on Arsenal Chase of ‘World Class’ Star With Another Deal Set to Be Announced

Target for Arsenal, Moises Caicedo

According to Fabrizio Romano, any move for Moises Caicedo in this transfer window is “completely off”. Both a Chelsea and Arsenal Moises Caicedo bid were met with rejection before the end of the window, even after the player himself released a statement expressing a desire to leave. The midfielder’s own coaches have described him as “world class” in the past, and Brighton & Hove Albion are looking to retain the player throughout his development.

Arsenal Moises Caicedo Move ‘Completely Off’

In spite of a lot of large bids for the player, Brighton & Hove Albion are looking to retain the services of Moises Caicedo. With bids of up to £70 million seeing rejection, the Seagulls’ choice to protect their asset could come primarily from a focus on qualifying for Europe. The club is extremely highly placed in the Premier League this season and retaining as much quality as possible means that Roberto de Zerbi has the greatest chance possible of bringing continental football to the Amex next season. Both Arsenal and Chelsea had significant bids resisted throughout January.

This is an excellent alternative to Moises Caicedo, with the midfielder bringing a lot of experience to the Arsenal squad. If the North London side is to keep pushing for the Premier League, the Italian will be a significant part of driving the side to their first piece of silverware since the Spanish manager helped the club to secure the FA Cup.
