“I think they are one of the best teams in the world and nobody would turn down an offer from Chelsea or any other club like that,” he told Ole in September.
“It’d be a dream to be in the best teams in the world and succeed there.”
Caicedo also spoke glowingly of Potter, who has since found himself under mounting pressure at Stamford Bridge.
“It made me very sad now that he left for Chelsea, because he helped me a lot and I wanted to continue having him as a manager, but that’s football,” he continued.
“You never know: today you can be here and tomorrow somewhere else, that’s the job of a footballer and a coach. At Brighton he worked very well and people love him very much. I’m very happy for him and for the great opportunity that was presented to him.”
More recently, Caicedo insisted he is focused on helping Brighton qualify for Europe with his club revealing there are currently no bids on the table.
He said: “We are training very well, are very focused on every match and I’m sure we will take Brighton to a qualification place for the Europa League.”
