There may still be hope for Arsenal as priority target Moises Caicedo posts a plea to Brighton on his Instagram.
The Gunners are currently five points clear at the top of the Premier League and have a game in hand over their nearest rivals, Manchester City.
But despite this, there are still doubts that they can maintain this form throughout the rest of the season and with many believing that City is still the favourite. The main foundation of this argument stems from Arsenals’ lack of depth, particularly in the midfield department.
With Thomas Partey potentially suffering from a rib injury, bringing in a capable replacement is an urgent matter. They tried to get Brighton midfielder, Caicedo, with a £60m bid but the club instantly turned it down.
The club have no intention of selling one of its best players in the middle of the season but they may be forced to after the 21-year-old posted a plea on his Instagram page.

New reports are emerging that Brighton will only sell the player if they receive an offer for £90m, a ludicrous amount considering he has only played 20 games in the Premier League.
But needs must for the Gunners, a signing here could be the difference between a title-winning season or a failure.
