Chelsea have reportedly hit a brickwall in their bid to bring in one of the club's top targets this summer as the midfielder appears set for a move elsewhere.

Chelsea midfield target Moises Caicedo has reportedly agreed personal terms with Arsenal to scupper Mauricio Pochettino's plans of adding the Ecuadorian to his new-look midfield.
