Chelsea close to wild double swoop: LaLiga ace “terms agreed,” Caicedo “almost done”

As Mauricio Pochettino gets ready for the next season, he is expected to bring in a few new players. Now, the Blues are close to a double swoop that would be amazing.

Several teams in the Premier League are interested in Jackson. So, if Chelsea can sign the 21-year-old, it will be a big deal.

In fact, TEAMtalk said that Aston Villa was interested in Jackson back in January. But it looks like he will move to Stamford Bridge now.

David Ornstein, a writer who writes for the Athletic, says this. He says that the Villarreal star has “agreed terms” with Chelsea.

But the London club still needs to talk with the Spanish club about a trade fee. Jackson’s present contract lets him get out of it for €35 million (£29.8 million).

Ornstein says that Chelsea “plans to negotiate” a transfer fee and “bring the Senegalese international to the club” this summer.

Jackson played in 26 LaLiga games for Villarreal this season. He scored 12 goals and set up four others. Since he can play as a center forward or a winger, he can help Pochettino in several key areas next season.

Since Pochettino is likely to lose a few midfielders this summer, Caicedo is one of his top goals.

In fact, Mateo Kovacic is almost done signing with Manchester City, and N’Golo Kante has already said he is leaving.

Also, Manchester United is still pretty sure they will be able to sign Mason Mount this summer. Pochettino will want to sign Caicedo as soon as possible because of this.

But his transfer fee is the biggest problem. Reports say that Brighton has put a value of £100 million on the Ecuador international. So, Chelsea will have to back up their words with action if they want to make a deal.

Still, it looks like the next few days will be very interesting for Chelsea fans.If they can get Jackson and Caicedo, it would be the best possible start to the trade window.
