We have entered the deadline day eve for the January Transfer Window. Many top clubs are still looking for new players. Moises Caicedo, Enzo Fernandez, Joao Cancelo, and many more have been linked with many top clubs. Check out the latest updates of the Transfer Market.
Arsenal made 2nd bid for Moises Caicedo
English league leader Arsenal have been linked with Brighton’s Moises Caicedo. The player is also desperate to join the Gunners. He has publicly expressed his desire to leave Brighton and Hove Albion. As we previously reported, Arsenal sent Brighton an offer of £60m for Caicedo. However, Brighton rejected the offer and said Moises Caicedo is not for sale.
But Arsenal keep pushing, and today they made another bid. The Gunners have sent an improved offer to sign Caicedo. Once again, Brighton rejected the 2nd offer of £70 million.
Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi has talked about Moises Caicedo’s post on Instagram. He was surprised by Caicedo’s post. Roberto De Zerbi said, “Caicedo is a very good guy and I can understand him. When you are 21 and you receive the request of a big team, they are playing in European competition, I can understand.”
When the manager was asked if he was surprised by Caicedo’s Instagram post, De Zerbi said, “Yes, yes I was. I’m not sure if it was him if you know what I mean.”
Chelsea still want Enzo Fernandez
Argentine world cup winner Enzo Fernandez has attracted many top clubs, including Chelsea FC. Chelsea FC tried hard to sign the Argentine player. To sign Enzo, Chelsea must meet the €120m million release clause.
Earlier in this window, Chelsea sent an offer, but Benfica rejected it. However, Chelsea are not giving up on Benfica’s midfielder. They will push for the player on the deadline day. Besides, Benfica’s boss is not happy with Chelsea’s approach. He said, “There is a club that wants him, they tried to attract him, but they know that they can only have him if they pay the clause.”
He added, “It’s disrespectful to all of us, to Benfica. They’re driving the player crazy. They pretend they want to pay the clause and then they want to negotiate.”
