Chelsea Heavily Linked With Premier League Defender as Rudiger Replacement

With the transfer window approaching, many clubs have heavily shown interest in several players from other clubs, and a few already made moves like Manchester City who have reportedly signed Erling Braut Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

In the wake of Antonio Rudiger's departure to Real Madrid at the end of the season, Chelsea are in the transfer market looking out for a replacement linked with several targets in a couple of days now.

However, the latest news reporting is Brighton & Hove Albion defender being heavily linked to Stamford Bridge.

Marc Cucurella's excellence at the back of the Seagulls' defense needs to be commended. A preferred attacker on the left flanks [Left-back, Left-midfield, Left-winger] in his days at Barcelona and Getafe, now plays as a center-back at his current club [Brighton & Hove Albion] and his attitude and magnitude in defense are incredible, recognized as one of the club's most valuable players.

The 23-year-old Spaniard has been a regular starter this season at the American Express Stadium featured in 33-league games playing at a rate of 88 minutes per game. Cucurella is more like a holding player able to progress from the defense to the opposition half through the flanks and a very good runner who can alternate in four different roles.

Signed with Brighton on a reported fee of €18M from Getafe a year and a half ago, his current market value is reported to be in the range of €25M - €35M.

What are your thoughts on Marc Cucurella being heavily linked with Chelsea?.
