Moises Caicedo is set to be confirmed as a Chelsea player imminently after completing ‘the main part of his medical tests’.
Fabrizio Romano shared the news in question on X after the Blues successfully navigated their response to Liverpool’s latest hijack attempt last week.

The Merseysiders had appeared to take control over the transfer saga with a £110m bid in accordance with Brighton’s deadline, though the London-based outfit’s £115m was the one to win the day.
As far as we’re concerned, Liverpool’s decision-makers clearly aren’t taking things lying down, with a move made to improve on Chelsea’s £55m bid for Romeo Lavia.
Yet again, however, we’re now embroiled in an almost identical situation to the Caicedo saga, with the Belgian set to choose between a switch to the English capital or the north of England.
It was understood that L4 was his preference of the two, though that reality has now been disputed by some recent reports, suggesting another situation that is far from being cut and dry.
