Blow for Chelsea as Caicedo speaks on Brighton future
Caicedo has become one of Europe’s best young midfielders in recent times after impressing with Brighton over the last year and interest in him has been rising in recent times.
However, despite interest in him over a move in the January transfer window, he insists he is comfortable on the south coast and is focused on the challenges ahead at Brighton.
Caicedo speaks on Brighton future
Speaking to The Argus, Caicedo said about his future: “No. To be sincere with you, I am focused now on Brighton I am here, I’m playing every day.
“What happens outside doesn’t trouble me, nor does it take that focus away because I’m focused only on here. I’m here today, I’ll be here tomorrow and then we will see.
“I handle it well. You hear rumours here and there but I only try to be focused on the club where I am now, the club which opened the doors for me to be playing every week.”
There have been rumours linking him with a move to Chelsea where former manager Graham Potter has been looking to improve his midfield and get a talent into the side for the long run.

Chelsea’s current midfield options include Jorginho and N’Golo Kante, but both players’ contracts run out at the end of the season and the Blues are looking to improve in that area.
There is little belief Caicedo will leave in January as Brighton will demand a big fee for the player to leave mid-season, something Chelsea are reportedly reluctant to pay in this window.
