Chelsea are pushing hard towards a deal for £50million-rated Albion wing-back Marc Cucurella, as it has been reported they have agreed personal terms with him.

The Blues have long since been tracking Cucurella, who came through the Barcelona academy and impressed at Getafe before joining Albion in 2021.

Now it has been reported by transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano that the Blues have agreed personal terms with Cucurella.

He tweeted: "Full agreement now reached between Chelsea and Cucurella on personal terms.

"Potential contract has been proposal approved, Marc’s prepared to accept once clubs agree on fee.

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

Albion are understood to be holding firm on a £50million valuation for Cucurella, which is thought to have stalled a possible move to Manchester City.

Chelsea are continuing to reshape the squad under new owners Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital, with manager Thomas Tuchel understood to remain keen on two further defensive recruits.

The Blues are also thought to harbour strong interest in Leicester’s Wesley Fofana, though prising the France star away from the King Power Stadium outfit will prove a tough ask.

Cucurella is thought to be open to a Chelsea move, with the one-cap Spain star having already expressed his desire for a fresh challenge amid the extended Manchester City interest.

Chelsea have already pulled off big-name signings in Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly but are determined to add further new faces to the squad.

Albion, however, have been linked with multiple left-backs, who would be able to replace Cucurella, inlcuding Sergio Gomez from Anderlecht and former Manchester City defender Angelino, who is currently playing for RB Leipzig.
