Arsenal was desperate to add Moises Caicedo to their squad in the January transfer window and tabled some bids for his signature.
Brighton insisted he was not for sale and rejected all those offers for him and the midfielder signed a contract extension with the Seagulls.
That decision seemed to suggest the South Coast club has now secured his future and should make it easier for them to keep him at the club for the long term.
Arsenal added Jorginho to their squad instead, but in the summer, they are expected to add a new man to their midfield.
Several midfielders are on their radar, but a report on Football Insider claims they will likely return for Caicedo.
It claims the Gunners still have the youngster on their radar and will make another attempt to add him to their squad finally.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Caicedo has been one of the finest midfielders in England in the last few seasons and seems good enough for our team.
At 21, he is at an age where he can deliver for us now and in the long term, so we should move for him if the funds are available.
Otherwise, we can turn our attention to other targets around the continent.

I can’t say anything about Arsenal transfers because they are very unpredictable and especially haven’t made any big money transfers in recent years.
I find it difficult to think they will do so in the summer.
But we badly need someone like Partey or even better. He didn’t start against Sporting and we suffered. After making a brilliant pass leading to our goal, Jorginho struggled and gave away the ball for the equaliser.
Brighton wanted 70M before he signed an extension.hoe much will they be asking for him now?80/90M?
Personally,I don’t think he is worth that much.
This is another bissuoma saga; it will end just like the bissuoma story Arsenal will find another Cheaper high quality alternative better than Caicedo or the price will drop when Arsenal shows no interest in the player remember Bissuoma from £45m to £25m to spurs; Watch the space 🚀
