According to reports, Chelsea and Marc Cucurella of Brighton are in advanced negotiations.
The 24-year-old would be the Blues’ third summer acquisition after Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly, according to Sky Sports.
According to reports, Chelsea is in early negotiations to acquire Cucurella and will match Brighton’s asking price of £50 million.
According to the report, Thomas Tuchel’s team is now in the lead over Manchester City, who are potential rivals for his services.
Chelsea will be able to welcome Cucurella to Stamford Bridge, according to the most recent development in this action-packed Cucurella tale.
He was the best left-back in Brighton’s lineup last season, so it’s not surprising that he’s been linked to Premier League powerhouses this summer.
If he signs, it’s been said that Blues boss Thomas Tuchel may use him as a centre defender in a back three, a position he’s previously held in the Brighton system. The £50,000-a-week star, on the other hand, possesses the speed and attacking instincts to legitimately contend with Ben Chilwell for the starting left wing-back position.

Cucurella, who was dubbed “outstanding” by Brighton captain Lewis Dunk, appears to be getting his big break after much speculation.
He will rank eighth among the most expensive acquisitions in the club’s history if he signs with Chelsea for the stated £50 million fee.
Yes, Cucurella appears to be another another talented player who will join the Chelsea team.
Concerned supporters want to see a new attacker and a more traditional center-half signed first as a priority, but the transfer window is still open for another month.
The player of the year for Brighton has the potential to be a great addition whose flexibility will be very helpful.
