Chelsea has reached an agreement for Brighton and Hove Albion defender Marc Cucurella, MySportDab reports.
Marc Cucurella is getting set to make a move to Chelsea this summer as they have reached an agreement that could see the whole deal completed in the following hours.
Manchester City was the side that already made the first approach for the Spanish player who was once with laliga side Getafe.
The Premier League champions made an offer of €40 million, which was immediately turned down despite Manchester City going as far as to ensure the move happened.
Personal terms were said to have been reached by both the Champions and the defender, with them thinking that would be enough for both of them to strike a deal that would have been official.
Chelsea had to enter the race after missing out on Jules Kounde who preferred a move to Barcelona over one to the English Premier League side that did make an offer to Sevilla.
The Blues are now pushing for Marc Cucurella, which is looking positive and is expected to be completed anytime soon between both clubs who are involved in talks.
According to the newest reports reaching us from Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea have reached an agreement for personal terms with the defender who will be joining once clubs complete their talks.

“Chelsea and Brighton in direct talks again today in order to complete the deal.
