City interested in Cucurella
Marc Cucurella has impressed a lot of clubs this season. But he has particularly impressed City and Guardiola the most. Guardiola has identified Cucurella as his primary target for the left-back position.
There is a vacancy for a left-back position at Etihad. City have been playing without a natural left-back. Oleksander Zinchenko has taken up this role. But now there are rumors of Zinchenko’s transfer. Arsenal and West Ham have been linked with the player. Joao Cancelo has the versatility to fill in on both sides. However, it is natural for the club to seek more depth.
Brighton’s top performer
Cucurella joined Brighton from Getafe for a fee of £15.4m. However, he still has four more years left with the Seagulls. He has made 38 appearances for Brighton. He was also voted as Brighton’s Player of the Season.
The Argus has reported that Cucrella’s agents have flown in from Madrid to Manchester. And the same report claims that are several rounds of talks to happen at the Etihad with the director of football Txiki Begiristain. Brighton are expecting to receive an offer for Cucrella. The premier league champions want to sign him. Even if a formal bid has not come through for Cucrella.
Moreover, City are also trying to sign Kalvin Phillips. The Leeds United player has allegedly told the club that he wants to join Guardiola at the Etihad.
