Brighton head coach Roberto De Zerbi has implied that wantaway midfielder Moises Caicedo has made a ‘mistake’ in demanding a transfer to Arsenal or Chelsea. The Ecuador international broke rank on Friday evening when he released a statement urging the Seagulls to accept a club-record bid from the Gunners. 

A £60million bid from Arsenal for Caicedo was rejected by Brighton on Thursday. It would have made the 21-year-old Brighton’s most expensive sale. 

Brighton are adamant that their prized asset will not be sold in the January transfer window. That is despite Arsenal considering making another offer for the player before Tuesday’s deadline. 

Head coach De Zerbi has now suggested that Caicedo made a ‘mistake’ in demanding to leave the club. Express Sport understands that Brighton are unhappy with the advice given to the youngster. 

Ahead of Brighton’s FA Cup clash with Liverpool, De Zerbi told ITV: “Moises is a good guy. We will see tomorrow and in the next days, what happens.

“We hope he stays with us for the rest of the season, but this a question for the club and Moises. Moises is a good guy. In life you can make mistakes. We will see the best solution for the club, for him and for us.” 

Caicedo has been left out of Brighton’s team for their cup tie with Liverpool. He has been asked to stay away from the club until February 1, by which time the transfer window will have closed the previous evening.
