Marc Cucurella has been talking about Moises Caicedo – and believes the Brighton No.25 wants to join Chelsea this summer.

The Spain international made the comments when speaking to Football London.

So, what did Marc Cucurella say about Chelsea target Moises Caicedo? Let’s take a look…

What’s the story?

Well, the Chelsea No.32 revealed that he has a strong relationship with the 21-year-old, and feels he is keen on moving to Stamford Bridge.

Cucurella said: “I think he wants to come here, I’ve read in the media lots of times. I have a good relationship with him, he is a good midfielder and if he comes I think we have a top midfielder for a long time.”

The 24-year-old and Caicedo know each other from their time at Brighton.

Cucurella shared a pitch with the Ecuador international on nine occasions at the Amex Stadium before his £60m move to Chelsea, and he could be one to help the South American settle down in west London.

Chelsea saw a £70m bid for Caicedo rejected on Tuesday, although The Times believe further talks are set to take place in the United States before the Blues and Brighton play each other on Saturday.

Cucurella may not be at Chelsea to welcome Caicedo

In truth, the Spaniard may not be at Stamford Bridge to see his pal arrive.

A story from Football Transfers claims that Chelsea are desperate to offload the defender this summer, after his underwhelming debut campaign last season.

Tottenham are believed to be interested.

Cucurella also told Football London that he wants to stay at Chelsea, although we can’t see him starting under Mauricio Pochettino with Ben Chilwell now back to full fitness.

Nevertheless, if the Alella-born defender does stay at Chelsea, he will hopefully be able to help Caicedo settle in quickly.
