'Full agreement': Chelsea now agree personal terms with 24-year-old, he could sign for them today - Romano

Brighton’s Marc Cucurella has reportedly agreed personal terms ahead of a potential move to Chelsea.

According to well-respected journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, the Brighton full-back has reached a “full agreement” to make a transfer this summer to Stamford Bridge.

It is understood a contract for the 24-year-old at Chelsea has been agreed, so he’s now just got to wait for the two clubs to wrap up a deal.

Romano explains the Blues will hold further discussions with Brighton on Tuesday in order to finalise the transfer. Therefore, it sounds like this could be wrapped up as early as today and he could become the club’s third signing of the window.

It’s been reported that Chelsea are willing to cough up Brighton’s £50million asking price for Cucurella, so look favourites to beat Manchester City to his signature.

Cucurella agreed personal terms with Chelsea

Thomas Tuchel’s side are now another step closer to landing Brighton’s speed machine.

Cucurella made a huge impact in English football last season at Brighton, providing excellent stamina and pace up and down the left flank. Also, he’s got the defensive know-how and versatility to fill in as a centre-back in a back three.

Chelsea decided to opt for the route of Premier League proven with Raheem Sterling’s signing, something they’re following with the imminent Cucurella transfer.

However, most supporters are curious about Tuchel’s plans for him if he joins.

It would be a fascinating battle for the left wing-back spot at Stamford Bridge with Ben Chilwell, but it would be a shame to have one of them on the bench every week.

Interestingly, it’s been claimed Tuchel would consider signing Cucurella as a centre-half option.
