Chelsea is said to be considering four players in addition to Brighton star Moises Caicedo, including Leeds midfielder Tyler Adams.

The Times claims that Chelsea has created a shortlist of five candidates, with Ecuadorian international Caicedo as the club’s primary priority.

The Seagulls have turned down Chelsea’s three offers for the 21-year-old, as talkSPORT reported last week. Their most recent offer of £80 million was rejected.

Caidedo is still valued at £100 million by Brighton, and it is still unclear whether Chelsea would meet their expectations.

There are four players that the west Londoners might then go after if they back out of a contract.

Adams, who just recently joined Leeds from RB Leipzig last year, is reportedly one of them. Adams did not succeed in keeping the Yorkshire team in the Premier League.

Chelsea is also keeping an eye on Romeo Lavia of Southampton and Edson Alvarez of Ajax.

Gabri Veiga of Celta Vigo completes Chelsea’s shortlist after a breakthrough 2022–23 season in which he scored 11 goals in 36 LaLiga games.


Romeo Lavia is a midfielder, and Southampton has turned down Liverpool’s second offer for him.

Tuesday morning, talkSPORT reported that the Reds have increased their offer to sign the 20-year-old.

Initially, the Merseyside club declined a £35 million bid for the Belgian international.

Furthermore, it’s said that Liverpool’s second offer was still much below the Saints’ £50 million asking price.

Lavia, a former star of the Manchester City academy, is still interested in joining Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.
