European giants Bayern Munich and Liverpool have joined Chelsea in a three-way race for the services of highly rated midfielder Moises Caicedo from Brighton and Hove Albion.
The 21-year-old is currently refusing to train or play for Brighton in an attempt to push through a move this summer and according to Sky Sports, Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and Liverpool are now interested in the Ecuadorean with Chelsea remaining the frontrunners.
Moises Caicedo wanted by European giants
Caicedo enjoyed a terrific breakthrough season for the Seagulls last term and showed his versatility under Roberto De Zerbi, performing admirably as a defensive midfielder as well as at right-back toward the end of the campaign.
Brighton are yet to budge from their $127.7m asking price for Caicedo which has slowed down negotiations with Chelsea- who are set to sign fellow defensive midfielder Tyler Adams from Leeds United.
According to Fabrizio Romano, however, a move for Adams will not affect the Blues’ approach for Caicedo- who they see as the ideal long-term candidate to replace the now departed N’Golo Kante.
