Marc Cucurella is currently in London to undergo his medical tests with Chelsea FC.

This comes after the London club agreed a £52.5million with Brighton & Hove Albion FC for the Spaniard’s signature.

A twist in the deal occured on Wednesday night when Brighton put out a statement via their official channels, refuting claims of an agreed deal with any club.

This came in stark contrast to reports from many reliable transfer sources confirming the deal.

It, however, surfaced that the reason for the holdup was Brighton’s desire to acquire a ready replacement before letting Cucurella leave.

That replacement looks to be Chelsea’s young defender, Levi Colwill.

Colwill will head in the opposite direction, even if it is unclear whether that will be on a temporary (loan) or permanent basis.

Even on a permanent basis, there appears to be an insistence from Chelsea’s side to insert a buyback clause into the Colwill deal.

Cucurella, meanwhile, will sign a 6yr deal shortly after successful medicals that will see him contracted to Chelsea until the summer of 2028.
