Chelsea are eyeing a top and quality transfer target to replace the outgoing center-right Antonio Rudiger, MySportDab reports.
The Blues lose Rudiger to Real Madrid in the heat of the takeover crisis that threatened the existence of the team.
Rudiger reportedly rejected a deal to stay at Stamford Bridge as his current contract expires at the end of the season.
The Blues are reportedly chasing Brighton defender, Marc Cucurella as a potential replacement for Rudiger.
Marc Cucurella had caught the fancy of the Blues although he is said to be an out wide attacking defender.
The Spanish international is said to be versatile and agile and can also function in the central defense.
Hence the Blues may use him as a potential replacement for Antonio Rudiger.
Marc Cuccurella moved from Barcelona to Brighton in the summer and has proved invaluable for the English side.
He has found the net 4 times for Brighton since joining the team and was on the score sheet when Brighton pummelled Manchester United 4-0.
Cuccurella has started every match for Brighton and has helped the team resist tougher Premier League opponents.
Chelsea Boss Thomas Tuchel is said to be interested in the Spaniard as he prepares to beef up the Blues’ defense ahead of next season.
However, Brighton coach Graham Potter has maintained that Cuccurella is a great addition to the team and offers on his head may not be entertained.
This is because Arsenal are currently on the trail of one of their defenders and the team may not be ready to loose both.
