Brighton owner, Tony Bloom said Chelsea can only sign their prized asset, Moises Caicedo on one condition.
The club manager, Roberto De Zerbi noted that the Colombian midfielder will move to the West London side if Chelsea meet their valuation.
With Chelsea having sold the likes of N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount and Ruben Loftus-Cheek this summer, new manager, Mauricio Pochettino looks to make strengthen the team.
The Seagulls have rejected two bids in the excess of £60m and £70m from Chelsea, demanding £100m for the midfielder.
De Zerbi has given assurance that the South American is part of his plan next season.
“I spoke with Tony Bloom [the club’s owner] and he told me if the condition doesn’t change, Moises stays with us,” De Zerbi said at a press conference on Friday.
“For me, it should be great news because it is difficult to find another great player. If Moises leaves, we have to find another player of the same level.
“At the moment, I have not received news that Caicedo can leave tomorrow or in the next week. I will start next season with Caicedo in my head in the first XI for sure.”
