Arsenal transfer target Moises Caicedo’s agent slams Brighton for not allowing the midfielder to seal Gunners’ move
ARSENAL transfer target agent Moises Caicedo has criticized Brighton for not allowing the player to seal a move to the Emirates in January.
Caicedo, 21, tried to force a late move from the Seagulls last month.
The midfielder took to social media to publicly plead with the club to allow him to seal a dream move to Arsenal, who submitted a series of offers, the highest of which was £70million.
Chelsea were also keen on Caicedo as manager Graham Potter had previously signed and managed the player at Brighton before taking on the role at Stamford Bridge.
Caicedo’s agent Manuel Sierra has slammed Brighton for denying its client a dream train.
In an interview with Marca90, translated by Ole, Sierra said: “The offers have come in, you see what’s on the table and Moises says he wants to move on, that it’s the dream of his whole life, that it’s a dream is an opportunity that may not be repeated in life… and we helped draft the statement.
“In this statement he expresses his wish and gratitude to the club for giving him the chance to fulfill his dream of playing in the Premier League.
“We don’t know what can happen tomorrow, maybe he’s training and getting injured.
“We cannot know what will happen.”
Sierra has also claimed that Brighton knew Caicedo would make a public statement.
FREE BETS AND SIGN UP OFFERS – THE BEST DEALS FOR NEW CUSTOMERS
Sierra added: “Moises has asked the club for permission to publish the statement, he is the one not training and not going to the game (vs Liverpool) because they decide to give him the weekend off.
“Brighton didn’t separate him.
“They understand the situation and love him very much.
“It was a mutual agreement.”
The wanton star is back in training for Brighton.
Brighton have a chance to reach European football for the first time in their history this summer.
Should Caicedo help them, the next window could bring the ideal situation for everyone.
The Ecuador international would have a choice between the best clubs in Europe and the Seagulls could, as they often do, demand a huge fee.
