The Gunners will launch £105 signing Declan Rice in a few hours but Granit Xhaka has moved to the Bundesliga, while Thomas Partey is likely to go to Serie A.
Speaking on ESPN, Burley thinks letting Xhaka and Partey go this summer is a good deal for the Gunners.
Caicedo is being targeted by Burley’s former club Chelsea this season as a replacement for N’Golo Kante who has moved to Saudi Arabia. But Burley said Arsenal should also target the youngster: “But if they could sell Xhaka and Partey for a little bit more, then you would ask for another player and that would be Caicedo from Brighton.”
“He’s 21. He can defend, go forward and hold the ball very well. He still has a lot to show and he has enough energy to cover the pitch.”
“I think it would be a better balance between him and Declan Ricewith Martin Odegaard somewhere around.”
