ALBION star Moises Caicedo is attracting interest from other clubs in the Premier League.

The Ecuadorian has been in brilliant form since he was brought into the team by manager Graham Potter last season and Albion are highly unlikely to have any willingness to sell him.

The 20-year-old has already become a key member of Albion's starting eleven and through his performances, has completely removed any need for the Seagulls to splash the cash on a replacement for Yves Bissouma, who joined Tottenham Hotspur during the current transfer window.

With the youngster impressing week-in and week-out, he has started to gain admirers in the Premier League. Manchester United, Arsenal and West Ham have been credited with an interest in the player.

There are even reports suggesting that the Red Devils are "in talks" to try and sign the midfielder. However, a deal will likely be very hard to complete, this summer at least, with Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth saying Albion have issued a "no intention of selling" stance on the player.

The Old Trafford based club were interested in signing Caicedo before he joined Albion as they scouted him during his time at the Ecuadorian side Independiente del Valle, but he opted to join Albion instead.

New manager Erik ten Hag has desperately been trying to freshen up his side this summer but has failed with moves for Barcelona's Frenkie De Jong and Juventus's Adrian Rabiot, and now Caicedo seems to be the next one on the Dutchman's list.

Albion have raised nearly £150million through player sales since last summer, with Ben White, Marc Cucurella, Yves Bissouma and Dan Burn all being sold for considerable fees.

The club have always said that they will not stand in the way of players if opportunities for them arise and the right deal can be made, as seen with the sales of White, Bissouma and Cucurella.

While a deal for Caicedo could feasibly be possible, it is likely Albion will demand a big transfer fee in order to consider selling him right now, considering the money the club has already brought in and the lack of time remaining in order to find a replacement with only two weeks left of the transfer window remaining.

Caicedo has made 12 appearances for Albion, scoring one goal and assisting two more. He was one of the standout players during the club's season-opening win against Manchester United at Old Trafford as he dominated against their midfield.
