Arsenal and Manchester United are reportedly interested in securing the services of Brighton & Hove Albion playmaker Moises Caicedo.

The Seagulls signed the 20-year-old midfielder from Independiente del Valle in February 2021, and although he has only played 12 games for the South coast side, Caicedo has caught the eye of a number of teams across Europe.

 

According to The Express, Man Utd and Arsenal are plotting a move for the Ecuador international before the transfer window ends.

Atletico Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen and West Ham United, are also credited with showing an interest, although they may find it tough to prise Caicedo away from Brighton.
