‘Love to be reunited’: Potter would love to sign midfielder who he gave his Premier League debut – journalist
The new manager will reportedly still be backed in the transfer market similarly to how Thomas Tuchel was, with Todd Boehly investing heavily over the summer.
While it is currently unclear which players the club will go after, some stars have seemingly made their intentions to join the Blues quite clear.
Caicedo is one of those, who when interviewed couldn’t hide his desire to play for the club one day.
The 20-year-old is one of the most promising midfielders in the Premier League, and has shined after being brought through to the Brighton first team by Potter.
The pair’s time working together has left O’Rourke believing that the Englishman would love to make him one of his first signings at Stamford Bridge.
Potter wants Caicedo reunion
He said: “Chelsea are looking to freshen things up. Caicedo has proven that he has got the qualities to be a top midfield player, and I’m sure Graham Potter would love to be reunited with him.
“But Brighton, on the other hand, will be hoping to keep hold of the Ecuador International.”
The midfield position could look very different at Chelsea in a couple of years’ time, with very little assurance over their futures at the club.
N’golo Kante is reportedly not in a position to accept his latest contract proposal, believing it is not for enough years for him to commit his future to the club.
Meanwhile, there are reported beliefs inside the club that Jorginho may be running down his own contract, with a return to Italy never off the cards for him.
Despite being young, Caicedo has already shown promise that he can compete for a starting role at a big club.
