Arsenal have submitted Brighton a £60 million bid for midfielder Moises Caicedo, as per transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

The Gunners have already signed Belgian attacker Leandro Trossard from the Seagulls during the January transfer window, as well as Polish center-back Jakub Kiwior from Serie A side Specia. Now, Romano has taken to social media to report that they have lodged an offer for Caicedo as they look to bolster their options in the centre of the park.

Writing on Twitter, Romano said: “EXCLUSIVE: Arsenal have submitted £60m bid to sign Moises Caicedo as new midfielder #AFC Chelsea had £55m verbal proposal rejected this January as Brighton hope to keep the player — but Arsenal are now pushing.

“Negotiations enter into key stages for Caicedo’s future.” Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has made it no secret of his desire to bolster options in midfield before next week’s transfer deadline, with Egyptian international Mohamed Elneny currently sidelines due to a knee issue.

“There are concerns. Mo is a player who never complains about anything but let’s see”, Arteta said when discussing Elneny ahead of Friday’s match against Manchester City in the fourth round of the FA Cup. “We need some more cover in midfield, ideally, if we can.

“But this market is complicated. But as I always say, the most important thing is we get the performances and the time on the pitch with the players we already have on the pitch are really good.”
