For the past few months, we’ve seen Argentine giants Boca Juniors being linked to several players from Premier League clubs.
Following the signing of Marcos Rojo, the La Bombonera side have reportedly been chasing the likes of Edinson Cavani, Sergio Romero and Lucas Torreira.
What we didn’t expect from the Argentine media today was a story involving Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo.
The 19-year-old, who made his first appearance on Premier League bench during the clash against Manchester United at the weekend is now seeing his future being linked to Boca Juniors as well.
That’s because when interviewed by Futbol Sin Cassette this week, former Xeneize player Chicho Serna talked a little about the Brighton player.
He’s been a long time fan of Caicedo, previously claiming he wanted to see him at Boca Juniors, and now restated his desire.
“You have to tell Caicedo to come, to live a Boca experience, that he will not regret it. It seems to me that he’s a player who has all the arguments to wear the Boca jersey,” said Serna (via El Universo).
“And it would be beautiful because it would improve the Ecuadorian relationship with Argentina, it would open the doors of the Boca world; as compatriots, you should advise him that way. Here, from afar, he has a person who admires him and who sees great potential in him.”
Caicedo joined Brighton on a €5m move from Independiente Del Valle in the winter market, and is still adapting to English football.
It’s quite obvious he won’t be returning to South America anytime soon, but it seems that once the time comes, there’s already a club where people want to see him at.
