Good morning Arsenal fans

Arsenal have joined rivals Chelsea in the bidding war for Brighton star Moises Caicedo.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the Gunners are plotting a swoop on the Seagulls again.

However, the North Londoners face stiff competition from the Blues as well as Liverpool for the midfielder, who has recently hired a new agent.

Romano tweeted: “Official. Moises Caicedo has picked Futbol Division as new agents — it’s now confirmed by agency statement.

“One to watch in the final days of Jan [January] window — Brighton want to keep him but Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal are well informed on Moises situation.”

In fact, Arsenal could hijack Caicedo and West Ham star Declan Rice, both of whom are Chelsea targets ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Blues poached Mykhailo Mudryk from under the Gunners’ noses in January but could be set to taste their own medicine.

Arsenal are interested in signing Caicedo and Rice this summer, according to the Evening Standard.

Meanwhile, the Gunners are considering a bid for Juventus star Weston McKennie.

According to Calciomercato, the North Londoners consider McKennie as a potential target that could help them strengthen in midfield and push for the Premier League title.

Bournemouth and Aston Villa are also keeping tabs on the £18million-rated USA international, who shone at the 2022 World Cup.

This comes amid a turbulent time for Juve, who were slapped with a 15-point deduction by an Italian court.

That is because of capital gain violations involving alleged inflated transfer values registered by the Bianconeri in the past few years.

Finally, Arsenal have handed new January signing Jakub Kiwior the No15 shirt.

Past players to don that number include Denilson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who is currently on loan at Southampton.

The centre-back joined the Gunners this month after a £21m deal with Spezia.

The Poland international passed his medical and has penned a contract until 2027, with the option of a further year.
