Last season, Caicedo’s contribution to Brighton secured their sixth position in the Premier League.
Caicedo, who hails from Ecuador, had previously requested a transfer from Brighton in January due to interest shown by Arsenal. Brighton, however, did not grant his request, leading to Caicedo extending his contract in March, which is valid until 2027.
Still, Caicedo continues to be a prime target for various Premier League teams, with Chelsea expressing the most interest in acquiring the 21-year-old.
Chelsea and Brighton are set to face off in the first match of the six-team pre-season Premier League tournament in Philadelphia this Saturday.
Caicedo will be heading to the US directly from Ecuador after receiving an extended break. Meanwhile, Brighton’s squad is expected to depart for the US on Tuesday.
In February 2021, Brighton acquired Caicedo from the Ecuadorian team, Independiente del Valle, for a reported fee of £4.5m. However, he did not see any action during that season.
Caicedo was loaned out to Beerschot in Belgium for the first half of the 2021-22 season, before being called back by Brighton in January 2022.
He made his Premier League debut in April 2022 and has since participated in 53 matches for Brighton, scoring two goals.
Caicedo was instrumental in Brighton securing the sixth position in the Premier League last season, which led to their qualification for the group stage of the Europa League.
