The 21-year-old Ecuador international had been a target for Premier League rivals Liverpool and Chelsea for a long time. Reports came by a few days ago that Caicedo has rejected Liverpool. His most probable destination was Chelsea and he is all set to join the London Giants this summer. Chelsea have agreed on a British record transfer fee of 115 million pounds ($146 million, 133 million euros) for Brighton and Hove Albion defensive midfielder Moises Caicedo, according to media reports on Monday.

It became clear over the weekend that Caicedo preferred a move to Chelsea and will join the West London club on an eight-year contract, according to the reports. Chelsea, who drew 1-1 with Liverpool in their Premier League opener on Sunday, hope Caicedo will be available for next weekend's trip to West Ham United.

He is all set to line up in Mauricio Pochettino's team alongside Enzo Fernandez, who cost what was then a British record 107 million pounds when he joined from Benfica earlier this year. Moises Caicedo is no longer in Brighton's squad. He was not there for their season-opening 4-1 win at home to Luton Town on Saturday.
