Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo is reportedly really unhappy with a lack of progress being made on his potential transfer to Chelsea.
The talented young Ecuador international could now be ready to try applying pressure on Brighton to let him go without asking for unrealistic money that might put Chelsea and other suitors off.
It seems clear that Caicedo really wants the move to Stamford Bridge, with Ben Jacobs explaining the latest on this situation in his Twitter thread below.
See below for full details as Jacobs says Caicedo has already agreed personal terms with Chelsea, but he’s clearly becoming frustrated with Brighton’s handling of the whole saga…

It seems Brighton sources have hinted at a figure of around £100m following the Declan Rice to Arsenal deal, but Caicedo is ready to insist that they back down from that kind of fee.
Chelsea fans will no doubt share the player’s frustration here as they’ll want to get this exciting signing done as soon as possible.
