Marc Cucurella wants a change Manchester City via Chelsea, with both clubs interested in the Brighton left-back.

The 23-year-old has attracted a lot of attention after a stellar first season in the Premier League with the Seagulls, arriving from Getafe for a fee of around £16million.

The Spaniard made 35 Premier League starts for Graham Potter’s side and now the champions and Chelsea are keen to enlist his services.

The Athletic report that Cucurella “intends” to join Manchester City as he sees the champions as the perfect place to take his game to the next level and because of the allure of playing under Pep Guardiola.

The left-back was at Barcelona from 2012-2020, coming through the Catalan giants’ youth teams and he would relish the chance to work with the Barca legend at City.

Whether Cucurella grants his wish depends on negotiations over Brighton’s asking price, which is estimated at around £50million.

Even the mega-rich Premier League champions aren’t keen on paying that amount for the Spain international and are likely to give up a deal if the Seagulls stick to their guns.

With Cucurella keen to join the Etihad it’s likely an agreement can be reached but Brighton will need to be open to negotiations.

City have already completed their biggest move of the transfer window, signing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, while they are also being linked with a move for Leeds and England midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
