In looking to replace Moises Caicedo, Brighton & Hove Albion has turned their attention to an African starlet who is currently in the process of finalizing his move to the Premier League.
Caicedo, who swiftly became a household name in Premier League football over the course of the last season, recently made a £115 million move to Chelsea.
Now though, Brighton have earmarked Carlos Baleba as a replacement for Caicedo in the defensive midfield position role. The 19-year-old player from Lille is said to be in the final stages of becoming Brighton’s latest acquisition, according to transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano.
“Carlos Baleba, undergoing second part of medical tests at Brighton right now,” Romano tweeted.
“Then time to sign #BHAFC Told contract will be valid until 2028 with an option for further year, 2029.”
