Brighton defender Marc Cucurella is set to join Chelsea this summer.
This is according to popular transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who said Chelsea have reached a personal agreement with Cucurella as they close in on a deal for the defender.
Aside from Chelsea, Premier League champions Manchester City have had multiple bids for Cucurella rejected by Brighton as they have refused to meet Brighton’s £50 million asking price for the player.
It seems the Blues have beaten the Citizens to it as they have now made a significant breakthrough and could welcome Curerella to Stamford Bridge in the coming days.
Cucurella is now said to be set to join the Blues once they reach an agreement over a fee with Brighton.
The 24-year-old defender wanted a move to Manchester City this summer and had submitted a transfer request a few days ago to force through a move.
With the look of things, Chelsea are at the forefront to sign the Spain international, especially as they seek to improve their defence ahead of the new season
