Arsenal Football Club has recently added to its roster with the signings of Leandro Trossard from Brighton and Jakub Kiwior from Spezia. However, manager Mikel Arteta is eager to make additional recruitments, particularly in the midfield position, due to injuries to Mohamed Elneny and Thomas Partey.
One player that is high on the club’s radar is Moises Caicedo, a 21-year-old midfielder from Brighton. However, the Gunners have been informed that it will take offers exceeding £90 million to secure the transfer. Despite this, Arsenal is continuing to pursue the acquisition of Caicedo, with a priority for the club to sign a midfielder before the end of January.
In the meantime, Declan Rice remains a top target for Arsenal for the summer transfer window. This is regardless of whether Caicedo makes the move to the Emirates Stadium or not. Reports suggest that the club’s interest in Rice has not changed and they are keen on acquiring both players.
Caicedo, who was missing in Brighton’s recent match against Liverpool, has expressed his desire to join the Gunners through a statement on his social media account. Despite this, the move for the Brighton midfielder will not impact the club’s pursuit of Rice, who is reportedly their main target for the summer transfer window.
Arsenal is continuing its efforts to reinforce its midfield, with a priority to sign a midfielder before the end of the month. The club is still pushing for the acquisition of Moises Caicedo, but remains interested in signing Declan Rice for the summer transfer window, regardless of whether Caicedo makes the move to the Emirates Stadium.
