The midfielder took to social media to publicly plead with the club to allow him to seal a dream move to Arsenal, who tabled a number of bids, with the highest being £70million.

Chelsea were also keen on Caicedo with manager Graham Potter having previously signed and managed the player at Brighton before taking the role at Stamford Bridge.

Caicedo’s agent, Manuel Sierra, has slammed Brighton for denying is client a dream move.

In an interview with Marca90, translated by Ole, Sierra said: “The offers were received, you see what is on the table and Moises says that he wants to go forward, that it is the dream of his whole life, that it is an opportunity that may not be repeated in life… and we helped draft the statement.

“In that statement, he expresses his wish and his gratitude to the club because they gave him the chance to fulfil his dream of playing in the Premier League.

Sierra has also claimed that Brighton were aware that Caicedo would make a public statement

Brighton have the chance to achieve European football for the first time in their history this summer.

Should Caicedo help them, then the next window could bring the ideal situation for everyone.

The Ecuador international would have the pick of the best clubs in Europe and the Seagulls would be able to command a huge fee, as they often do.
