Chelsea could now sign both Moises Caicedo and Robert Sanchez from Brighton as part of a “total package” this summer.

That is according to Fabrizio Romano.

So, what is the latest on Chelsea targets Robert Sanchez and Moises Caicedo? Let’s take a look…

Well, it is not exactly a secret that Chelsea want to sign the Ecuador international and the Spain international – that has been well documented, especially in the last few days.

However, the possibility of both players joining Chelsea as part of a combined package deal is not something that was suggested, until now.

Speaking on YouTube, Romano said: “From what I understand, these are two separate deals, but there is a chance to agree a total package. This is something that they are still discussing. There is a possibility to put both players in the same amount.”

Brighton are said to want £100m for Caicedo alone – according to the Guardian – while Nathan Gissing suggested that the Seagulls could sell Sanchez for just £20m.

Brighton should let Chelsea have Caicedo if Blues take Sanchez

In our view, Brighton should finally consider letting Chelsea have Caicedo if they agree to take Sanchez as well.

Let’s look at the facts.

Sanchez is now Brighton’s third-choice goalkeeper after losing his place under Roberto De Zerbi to Jason Steele, and the Italian has since spent £16.3m on Bart Verbruggen, who looks likely to come in as No.1 given the amount spent on him.

Therefore, Brighton need to offload the Spaniard, seeing as he will hardly play next season.

So far, Brighton have refused to let Caicedo move to Chelsea – despite the fact he has agreed personal terms with Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

However, if the Blues agree to pay a decent fee for Sanchez, removing an outcast from De Zerbi’s squad in the process, the Seagulls should let their No.25 get his wish of a move to Stamford Bridge.
