It looks like Marc Cucurella will join Chelsea very soon, with Tottenham Hotspur set to lose the player.
The Brighton & Hove Albion left-back is closely linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.
Spurs were linked in July, but although the Seagulls publicly deny speculation that a move to Chelsea has been agreed, it looks increasingly likely.
Fabrizio Romano sent a tweet in the early hours of Friday morning, revealing that the Spain international – who has 35 Premier League games under his belt – had undergone a ‘perfect’ medical procedure with the West London side ahead of what would be £62. million conversions.
Mark Cucurella joins Chelsea?
Tottenham will not be overly disappointed.
Yes, it seemed like a real target sometime last month, but the Lilywhites seem to be working on an easier alternative at the moment.
According to Romano this week, Tottenham are in talks to sign Destiny Udogie.
Calciomercato doubled down on this by revealing that a £21m Udinese defender transfer deal is imminent, and it is clear that if Antonio Conte and Fabio Barracci get him, Cucurella will not be needed.
If and when Udogie is confirmed, it could make up for Sergio Reguilon’s departure.
The Spanish left-back, who joined from Real Madrid in 2020, is closely linked with a move away from Spurs, and Odiogi’s arrival should, in theory, suggest he will leave the Premier League.
