Brighton & Hove Albion left back Marc Cucurella looked set to join Manchester City, but that deal seems to have collapsed, or at least stalled, over the weekend after the two teams failed to agree a transfer fee. Sensing an opportunity, Chelsea have jumped in and are reportedly close to hijacking this deal.

According to multiple reports, including the Athletic, the Guardian, the Evening Standard, and the Telegraph, Chelsea are pushing to make this deal happen and pushing hard and fast.
