Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo failed to report for training on Monday and has collected his belongings as he awaits a move to Chelsea.
The Ecuadorian has been heavily linked to Chelsea for several months, but the clubs have not yet reached an agreement on the deal. According to Spanish outlet Relevo, Caicedo has refused to attend Brighton training to push for the move.
Moreover, it’s also stated that Caicedo has emptied his locker in anticipation of his move to Stamford Bridge, even though no deal has been reached yet.
Caicedo did not appear in Brighton‘s friendly against Rayo Vallecano over the weekend, and it seems that the 21-year-old is intent on forcing a move to work under Mauricio Pochettino.
It remains to be seen whether Chelsea will meet Brighton’s asking price of £100 million ($127m) before the end of the window, but with Caicedo refusing to train, Brighton finds itself in a difficult position.
