Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo has admitted he would not be able to turn down a move to Chelsea this summer.

Caicedo has been Chelsea's top targetall summer as the Blues look to fill the huge void they have in midfield after the departures of N'Golo ante and Mateo Kovacic.

Reaching an agreement with Brighton has been increasingly dfficult for Chelsea but both sides remain in negotiaions. 

The sticking point has been Brighton's price tag of £100m which has been dictated largely by Declan Rice's impending transfer to Arsenal. The West Ham captain was able to command a fee of £105m and the Seagulls value Caicedo at just a little under that. 

Caicedo wants Chelsea move

"It's a big team, that is true," he told Maria Jose Flores when asked about a potential Chelsea transfer.

 "A very historic team and I can't say no, because it's a very big, historic, beautiful team. "The city as well is beautiful. It's got everything beautiful."

Despite Brighton's interest in seeing Chelsea offer Levi Colwill in any bid for Caicedo, Chelsea have made it clear they will not entertain the possibility.
