Chelsea and Brighton are currently in negotiations over the details of the transfer fee for Moises Caicedo.
The two clubs are discussing the method of payment for the Ecuador midfielder’s transfer.
Brighton is demanding £80m for the sale of Caicedo, the same amount they rejected from Arsenal earlier this year.
Chelsea considers this valuation to be reasonable, but the structure of the deal still needs to be agreed upon.
Brighton wants the fee to be paid upfront or at least the majority of it, while Chelsea prefers to stagger the payments over the next four years.
Both clubs are working towards finding a compromise, as Brighton has stated that Caicedo will join their US tour on Monday unless an agreement is reached with Chelsea today.
