Official: Chelsea have signed Marc Cucurella from Brighton & Hove Albion.

Chelsea’s last big blow of the summer transmission window24-year-old left-back Marc Cucurella joins from Brighton & Hove Albion.

A dramatic week of this transition happening, then not happening, then happening again has now been spotted at 55+7 million. In turn, Brighton also get our young centre-back Levi Colwill on a season-long loan.

Cucurella was on our radar for some time nowand Chelsea did a strong game (perhaps as much as €30m) for his signature a couple of years ago, although we would end up signing Ben Chilwell and Cucurella would stay in Spain with Getafe. He would eventually move to England twelve months later and impressed enough at Brighton to be named Player of the Year and Player of the Year and earn a move to SW6.

Mostly a left-back, Cucurella has also played well at left-centre-back, giving us a lot of flexibility on that side of the defence.

“Marc is an elite defender of the highest quality in the Premier League and he further strengthens our squad for the new season. We continue to work together on and off the pitch and are delighted that Marc will be part of Chelsea’s present and future.
