Despite the signing of Robert Sánchez from Brighton Albion. The West London Club are still very interested in Moisés Caicedo.

Mauricio Pochettino made it known that they needed more legs in the midfield. As a result, Chelsea will do everything to sign a new midfielder this summer transfer window.

The Premier League side are heavily interested in getting Moisés Caicedo. And the player himself has already agreed to personal terms with the Blues.

Therefore, it’s up to Chelsea to reach an agreement with Brighton Albion. However, the Seagulls continue to prove stubborn, as they demand a whopping £100 million.

Meanwhile, the Blues have already lined up Roméo Lavia as an alternative. Even though they may face competition from Liverpool and Manchester United.

Mauricio Pochettino’s troops will play their EPL opener in the next few days. And they would have to add a new midfielder to the squad before the game.

Of course, there’s Andrey Santos, who partners with Enzo Fernández. Nevertheless, Moisés Caicedo is everything the West London club needs in midfield.

On the contrary, Chelsea have made a u-turn in pursuing the Ecuadorian youngster. They are now focusing on a new defensive midfielder.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are interested in Leandro Paredes of Paris Saint-Germain. They reportedly frustrated by Moisés Caicedo’s deal.

Chelsea concluded the signing of Robert Sánchez (goalkeeper) from Brighton Albion within a week. However, there hasn’t been any breakthrough with Caicedo’s deal.

As a result, the Premier League side are frustrated by the lack of progress in the negotiation. Therefore, they have shown their interest in Paredes of PSG.

At the moment, Moisés Caicedo is more like Enzo Fernández. There’s no player that currently comes close to their potential in the world of football.

Both defensively and offensively, the Ecuadorian midfielder ticks all the boxes to elevate the Blues midfield. So, the club won’t try to settle for less.

Chelsea’s firm interest in Leandro Paredes doesn’t mean they have given up on Caicedo. However, they are lining up their alternatives, before September 1st.

Regardless, it’s up to the West London club to pay the £100 million. Or they settle for less, struggling throughout the 2023-2024 campaign in all competitions.

Mauricio Pochettino is a big fan of Leandro Paredes. Of course, they are both Argentines, and he played him regularly during his time at Paris Saint-Germain.

However, the 29-year-old defensive midfielder doesn’t fit the profile the Blues need at the moment. Nevertheless, it’s up to the manager to decide.

Paris Saint-Germain are already looking for ways to offload Leandro Paredes. He spent the 2022-2023 season on a long-term loan at Juventus.

Since he couldn’t breakthrough into the Parisians first-team. Obviously, it shows that he’s not the kind of DM Mauricio Pochettino needs to partner with Enzo Fernández.

Simply put, Chelsea have reportedly made a u-turn in signing Moisés Caicedo. As they now show interest in a 29-year-old Argentine defensive midfielder.
