Another bid rejected! Chelsea see £80m Moises Caicedo offer turned down by Brighton



Chelsea have seen an £80 million ($103m) bid rejected for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo.

Fabrizio Romano reports that Chelsea’s latest offer for Caicedo, worth £80m, has been rejected “immediately” by Brighton. The club have now made three bids – the first two were worth £60m ($77m) and £70m ($90m) – and it remains to be seen if a fourth follows.

Romano reports that the clubs remain locked in negotiations and there is no agreement between the two sides.Brighton value Caicedo in excess of £100m ($128m), having seen Declan Rice move to Arsenal for a fee of £105m ($135m) earlier this summer.Chelsea are attempting to restructure their squad under new manager Mauricio Pochettino and have already signed Christopher Nkunku, Nicolas Jackson and Angelo this summer, while letting 13 players leave permanently.Chelsea will surely mull over whether to return with a fourth offer for the Ecuador international.
