Marc Cucurella’s medical has been scheduled, the length of his contract has been confirmed, and the transfer money has been paid.
According to sources, Chelsea are closing in on Marc Cucurella, who is now through his medical, while a move away from Chelsea for Levi Colwill is also imminent.
Despite Brighton’s public denial that a deal had been reached for Cucurella on Wednesday evening after rumours emerged that a £52.5 million fee had been agreed upon between the clubs, a transfer is now on the verge of completion.
Despite interest from both Chelsea and Manchester City, the Blues are the only team willing to fulfil the asking fee for Cucurella, who is 24 years old.
Colwill will head to the south coast as a result of his move to Stamford Bridge, where he has signed a contract.
Initially, it was assumed that it would be on a permanent basis, but it has since been suggested that it could now be on a temporary loan basis..
After Fabrizio Romano revealed that Cucurella is now in London undergoing medical tests ahead of a big-money move to the capital, a transfer is apparently on the approach of happening.
Before a transfer can be finalized and confirmed, the parties involved in it must sign the necessary paperwork.
Chelsea’s second defender of the summer appears to be on the verge of completing a move for Colwill after reports indicated a breakthrough in the 19-year-part old’s of the agreement.
There is no guarantee that Cucurella will be fit for Saturday’s Premier League start against Everton.
Cucurella, according to Nathan Gissing, has agreed to a six-year deal that will expire in 2028.
He will join the likes of Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Gabriel Slonina, and Carney Chukwuemeka at the club once his arrival has been confirmed.
