The Gunners had both on their radar but couldn’t bring either due to their high transfer fees. However, following Wednesday’s humiliation at the hands of Manchester City, Arsenal are now willing to bring at least one of them in.

Arsenal made a bid in excess of £80 million for Caiceido during the January transfer window, but Brighton refused to sell.
