ARSENAL are preparing a fresh summer swoop for Moises Caicedo, according to reports.
The Gunners saw a £70million bid rejected by Brighton for the Ecuadorian in January.

Mikel Arteta’s side moved to sign Jorginho as an alternative on deadline day.
While Caicedo penned a new four-year deal at Brighton earlier this month.
Despite the wonderkid’s new contract, Football Insider claim that Arsenal will go back in for Caicedo at the end of the season.
The midfielder’s new contract has protected his value at Brighton.
And the Seagulls are set to demand £90m for their in-demand star.
Prior to signing his new deal, Caicedo had begged Brighton to let him go.
He wrote on Instagram in January: “I am grateful to Mr. [Tony] Bloom and Brighton for giving me the chance to come to the Premier League and I feel I have always done my best for them. I always play football with a smile and with heart.
“I am the youngest of 10 siblings from a poor upbringing in Santa Domingo in Ecuador. My dream always to be the most decorated player in the history of Ecuador.

“I am proud to be able to bring in a record transfer fee for Brighton which would allow them to reinvest it and help the club continue to be successful.
“The fans have taken me into their hearts and they will always be in my heart so I hope they can understand why I want to take up this magnificent opportunity.”
Caicedo joined Brighton from Ecuadorian side Independiente del Valle for £4.5m in 2021.
He enjoyed a loan spell in Belgium during the first half of the 2021-22 campaign before becoming a regular at the Amex.
The rising star has so far made 38 appearances for the Seagulls, starring under Roberto De Zerbi.
