Chelsea reach an agreement with Brighton for Left back, Marc Cucurella

Chelsea have reached an agreement in principle to sign Marc Cucurella from Brighton for £52.5m, but a deal has not been completed for the left-back.

Numerous sources involved in the deal have told Sky Sports News a deal has been agreed in principle.

Brighton have since denied a deal has been reached. The Seagulls' pursuit of Chelsea defender Levi Colwill is complicating a move.

Brighton have said as far as they're concerned this deal is not agreed with anyone yet, contrary to lots of reports from numerous outlets," said Sky Sports News chief reporter Kaveh Solhekol.

"We should also bear in mind, numerous people involved in the negotiations and the deal are telling us, and lots of other outlets, they feel a deal has been agreed in principle, that Chelsea are willing to pay £52.5m for him, the player wants to go to Chelsea. As far as they're concerned, he is going to be a Chelsea player and in fact a medical has been booked.

But he is a Brighton player and if they are saying the deal hasn't been done yet, no matter what we're being told by other sources involved in negotiations, the deal has not been completed yet.

"It could be complicated as well because Brighton are also interested in signing young Chelsea player Levi Colwill. I don't think that deal is going to be involved in the Cucurella deal but those are negotiations going on in parallel.

Numerous sources are still saying to us the player is confident that he is going to become a Chelsea player.

"The Spaniard handed in a transfer request on Friday in a bid to push through a move to Manchester City but the Premier League champions did not want to pay Brighton's asking price for the 24-year-old.

Chelsea have begun talks to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona, according to reports.

The 33-year-old joined Barca on a free transfer in February after Arsenal agreed to terminate his contract.

But the arrival of Robert Lewandowski this summer poses a threat to the amount of playing time Aubameyang will get at Camp Nou, while Barcelona are also keen to get some of their high earners off their wage bill in order to balance their financial situation.

Chelsea have already signed Raheem Sterling from Manchester City this summer to improve Thomas Tuchel's attacking options but the club have made moves to bring in a new striker following Romelu Lukaku's return to Inter.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea have now approached Aubameyang about the possibility of a move to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Tuchel has already worked with Aubameyang at Dortmund and the pair share a positive relationship following their time together in the Bundesliga.

Chelsea also made a move to sign Aubameyang during Frank Lampard's reign in January 2020 but were put off by the striker's wage demands.

During his time at Arsenal, Aubameyang scored 92 goals in 163 appearances and helped the club win the FA Cup in 2020.

But his final few months with the Gunners were turbulent as Mikel Arteta stripped him of the captaincy due to an accumulation of disciplinary issues.
