Moises Caicedo ready for medical as Chelsea nears sensational £170m double deal

Moises Caicedo is scheduled to undergo a medical examination in London today before finalizing his transfer to Chelsea for a British record fee of £115 million.

After reaching an agreement with Brighton for an up-front payment of £100 million and prospective add-ons worth £15 million, Chelsea was able to ward off interest in the midfielder who is 21 years old from Liverpool.
Caicedo has committed to an eight-year deal with the option of a further season, and the Ecuador international might make his debut on Sunday away at West Ham. Caicedo is a national team player for Ecuador.

Romeo Lavia, a Southampton midfielder, is the subject of advanced negotiations with Chelsea regarding a transfer fee of £55 million.

Liverpool’s indignation stems from the fact that their club was encouraged by Caicedo’s entourage to compete with Chelsea for the player’s signature prior to the completion of their contract for Caicedo.
Caicedo turned down a move to Anfield after Liverpool’s offer of £110 million was accepted by Brighton. Instead, he made it quite plain that he desired to move to Stamford Bridge.

Yesterday, Chelsea and Liverpool played to a 1-1 draw, and the Blues want to combine Caicedo in the middle of the field with Enzo Fernandez, their January addition who cost £107 million. What this implies is that Mauricio Pochettino will have two of the most expensive players in the history of British football at the center of his club.

The Blues are also close to agreeing personal terms with Crystal Palace forward Michael Olise, and they want to secure a deal for approximately £45 million for the 21-year-old. Olise is currently playing for Crystal Palace.

They have also agreed to pay Santos £17 million for the rights to forward Deivid Washington, who is only 18 years old. Washington will transfer to Strasbourg in France, which is Todd Boehly’s new club, on loan.

After reaching an agreement to send Kepa Arrizabalaga to Real Madrid on loan, Chelsea will also begin their search for a new goalkeeper to replace Arrizabalaga.
