Arsenal have joined rivals Chelsea in the bidding war for Brighton star Moises Caicedo.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the Gunners are plotting a swoop on the Seagulls again.

However, the North Londoners face stiff competition from the Blues as well as Liverpool for the midfielder, who has recently hired a new agent.

Romano tweeted: “Official. Moises Caicedo has picked Futbol Division as new agents — it’s now confirmed by agency statement.

“One to watch in the final days of Jan [January] window — Brighton want to keep him but Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal are well informed on Moises situation.”

In fact, Arsenal could hijack Caicedo and West Ham star Declan Rice, both of whom are Chelsea targets ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Blues poached Mykhailo Mudryk from under the Gunners’ noses in January but could be set to taste their own medicine.

Arsenal are interested in signing Caicedo and Rice this summer, according to the Evening Standard.
