Youth football expert sees Moises Caicedo making big Premier League move
We’re delighted to welcome the founder of Kinetic Academy Harry Hudson as our exclusive columnist. Each week the youth football expert will be giving his views on the biggest talking points on wonderkids across the UK…
Brighton have been making big strides in youth football since they made the jump up to the Premier League and it is starting to reap rewards.
Youngsters from within The Amex are making their way into the first-team squad from time to time and one player who has excelled on the South Coast since joining the Seagulls is Moises Caicedo.
The 21-year-old Ecuadorian international has been a midfield colossus this season and has therefore attracted interest from Manchester United, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Youth football expert is a big fan of Caicedo’s and Brighton’s transfer policy and expects him to make the Seagulls a big profit if and when he is sold to another Premier League side.
“It’ll be up to Brighton, who are in a very strong position financially, whether they want him to go but ultimately, they are a selling club,” Hudson said exclusively to The Football Wonderkids.
“There are a number of real top talents there and it’s a credit to their recruitment department in finding these players and then giving them the platform to play and excel.
“The athleticism of Caicedo is a good point because the game is so physical now because clubs like Brighton can’t recruit the top, top players, so the only way they might be able to compete is to have a higher physical output.
“I’m sure Caicedo will be attractive to high-level Premier League clubs and Brighton will be delighted because their business model is bringing in a lot of cash right now.”
