Important week for Chelsea and Moises Caicedo, plus links with Gabri Veiga and Elye Wahi

It’s an important week for Chelsea and their contacts over Moises Caicedo. It’s not an easy deal to report on as a journalist, because there are no official bids yet - it’s a daily verbal exchange between the two clubs, a direct conversation, but it is ongoing and this week they will work again on the deal. The player is still hoping and pushing to join Chelsea, and already has an agreement on personal terms, so that won’t be a problem. The player has said yes, and now it’s on the clubs, and Mauricio Pochettino hopes to have Caicedo as soon as possible. But it’s not easy because looking at the Declan Rice deal, Brighton feel they can get something like £90-100m.
