Brighton & Hove Albion playmaker Moises Caicedo has revealed that it would be tough to turn down the chance to reunite with Graham Potter at Stamford Bridge.

Following the dismissal of Thomas Tuchel, Potter was appointed on his job last week and took charge of his first match on Wednesday night, with the Blues 1-1 at draw against Red Bull Salzburg.

The West London giants made nine summer additions before the arrival of Potter, and it is believed that they are prepared to back the Englishman in the next two transfer windows as they bid to challenge Liverpool and Man City for the Premier League trophy.

20-year-old Caicedo has recently emerged as a potential target for the West London giants, while the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool are also keeping close tabs on his signature.

Caicedo has become a first-team regular at the Amex Stadium since the turn of the year, however, has admitted that it would be a “dream” to link up with Potter at Chelsea.

Speaking to Argentine news outlet Ole, Caicedo said: “It made me very sad now that he [Potter] left for Chelsea, because he helped me a lot and I wanted to continue having him as a manager, but that’s football.


“You never know: today you can be here and tomorrow somewhere else, that’s the job of a footballer and a coach.

“At Brighton he worked very well and people love him very much. I’m very happy for him and for the great opportunity that was presented to him.”

Caicedo added: “Right now I’m very focused on Brighton and the World Cup. I want to have a great World Cup and then we’ll see what happens.

“I think they are one of the best teams in the world and nobody would turn down an offer from Chelsea or any other club like that. It’d be a dream to be in the best teams in the world and succeed there.”
