Spurs Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur rival Manchester City to facilitate move for Marc Cucurella

According to Spanish journalist Albert Roge (h/t The Express), Tottenham Hotspur will battle it out with Manchester City to facilitate a move for Marc Cucurella ahead of the summer transfer window. He is one of the best pieces of business done by a Premier League side this season, having been an instant success for Brighton and Hove Albion.

Cucurella has quickly adapted to the new surroundings, and the defender has even won Brighton’s Player of the Year award, which is an indication of how good of a campaign he has enjoyed. That has attracted attention from some of the top English clubs, with Tottenham and Man City vying for his services.

Chelsea have also shown an intent to finalise a move to secure the Spaniard’s services ahead of the next season. He is currently valued at around £30million, but the Seagulls are unlikely to entertain bids in that region as they are under no pressure to part ways with their recent signing.

Can Spurs convince Brighton?

The interest from Pep Guardiola’s side does not bode well for us in any case due to the immense stature they possess at this moment. They have a world-class sporting project and are financially able to impose themselves in the transfer windows as well. Moreover, they could also use a left-back in their ranks this summer.

After all, Benjamin Mendy is out of contention right now, while Oleksandr Zinchenko could be upgraded with a natural addition. Joao Cancelo has often been played as a left-back, but Cucurella’s arrival could see him shift back to his position on the right-hand side of the defence.

The Manchester club can offer Cucurella regular minutes considering Benjamin Mendy’s suspension but so can Spurs, if they believe that the Seagulls star would be an upgrade on their current options. Then again, if Graham Potter’s side would not change their current stance, then there is no use in pursuing the 23-year-old anyway.

Cucurella has shown during his days at Getafe and Amex Stadium that he is quite flexible enough to play as a left-back and a left wing-back if and when required. We could have used someone like him in our ranks, considering the issues that currently lie in our squad.

Ryan Sessegnon finally looks to be on the right track to attaining the full potential he had shown in the past. Conte has reinvigorated him, but the problem lies with the injury troubles that have continued to plague him even now. If Sessegnon fails to maintain his fitness, we have to find replacements for him moving forward.

Sergio Reguilon, meanwhile, has struggled to take the next step, having impressed initially under the Tottenham manager. Wing-backs are very important in Conte’s system, and they play a big role in the attack, which is where Reguilon can arguably fall short at times.

That is not to say that the former Real Madrid left-back isn’t a good option to have, but the competition Cucurella could provide would surely be welcome. Nevertheless, even if Spurs miss out on the Brighton talent and manage to keep their current options, it wouldn’t be a bad left flank to have for next season.
