The City boss is keen to bring in a new left-back this summer as while Joao Cancelo excelled there last year, Benjamin Mendy is suspended indefinitely and there are rumors Oleksandr Zinchenko could leave the Etihad.

Cucurella was in outstanding form for Brighton last season, helping Graham Potter’s side to their best-ever Premier League result of ninth place and being voted Player of the Season by both fans and players.

This summer, the Citizens have signed strikers Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland and club chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak has already promised two more signings before the window closes.

There will also likely be multiple releases, with the aforementioned Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus heavily linked with Arsenal, goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu nearing the completion of his £12million move to Southampton and club captain Fernandinho retiring from City career after nine years.

The long-discussed departure of Jesus is reportedly imminent and the Gunners expect to sign the striker for just under £50m, which City wanted for the Brazilian.

As for Brighton, the loss of Cucurella, even for a sizable win, could spell trouble as the Seagulls are set to lose another of their top players in the form of Yves Bissouma, who is very soon completing a £25m transfer to Tottenham becomes.
