Cucurella fits the bill after a standout first season in England.
Chelsea will rival Man City for Brighton fullback Marc Cucurella.
According to The Sun, Chelsea must pay at least £45million to win the race for Cucurella.
Spanish left-back is heavily linked with Manchester City and Tottenham.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, buoyed by the news that Todd Boehly’s £4.25billion takeover of the club has cleared its final hurdle, is plotting a major overhaul of his defence.
The full-back fits the bill after a standout first season in England following a £15.4million transfer from Spanish outfit Getafe. Tuchel is braced to lose left-back Marcos Alonso, who is keen to return to Spain.
Chelsea’s other player to fill that slot is Ben Chilwell and he only returned to action last weekend following a major knee injury.
