Official: Chelsea sign Marc Cucurella from Brighton and Hove Albion

Chelsea’s latest big game of the summer transfer windowWith our spending increased to over £150m, we arrived with great hair and high expectations, as 24-year-old left-back Mark Cucurella joined from Brighton and Hove Albion.

An exciting week of that transfer happened, then it didn’t, then it happened again, now seen across the line for a £55+7m transfer fee, with Cucurella signing a six-year contract to tie him to the club until 2028. In return, Brighton will also get Young central defender Levi Colwell is on loan for a season.

Kokurila was on our radar for a while nowChelsea gave a strong play (Maybe up to €30m) for his signature two years ago already, although we would have ended up signing Ben Chilwell instead and Cucurella would have ended up staying in Spain with Getafe. In the end, he got his move to England twelve months later and impressed well enough with Brighton to be named Player of the Year and Player of the Year, earning his move to SW6.

He’s often a left-back, and Cucurella has played a decent amount of left-back in three defenses as well, which gives us a lot of flexibility in that aspect of defence.

“Mark is an elite defender of high quality in the Premier League and he is strengthening our squad even more in the new season. We continue to work on and off the pitch, and we are delighted that Mark is a part of the present and future at Chelsea.”
