Chelsea’s January transfer spending spree shows no signs of ending.
They have already splurged well over £100 million on the likes of Benoît Badiashile, Andrey Santos, David Datro Fofana, and Mykhailko Mudryk, and bringing in Joāo Felix on loan.
But now come reports that they are interested in Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo.
Graham Potter knows the player well from their days at Brighton together, and he has gone from strength to strength since the departure of Yves Bissouma to Tottenham in the summer.
The South Coast side have reportedly slapped a price tag of £85 million on the head of the Ecuadorean international.
But that seems unlikely to deter Chelsea in their current mood under Todd Boehly, as Potter looks to fundamentally reshape his team.
Central midfield is an area of the side that now needs a serious upgrade, after defensive and striking reinforcements have been added at Stamford Bridge.
