Chelsea only officially announced a new signing yesterday, and today, they could be set to announce yet another!
Todd Boehly is moving mad this summer window and he is really looking to back Thomas Tuchel with exactly what he wants in the market to improve his squad and get them challenging at the top again.
Carney Chukwuemeka arrived from Aston Villa yesterday and he got straight involved with first team training. Tuchel will be hoping to do the same with Marc Cucurella today, who is expected to join from Brighton.
Fabrizio Romano has been completely on top of this deal all the way through, and he has the latest on the situation over night.
The medical has been passed, the fee has been agreed, personal terms were agreed days ago, and now, the contracts were being prepared over night so that they can announce the move today, hopefully.
Chelsea and Brighton have been preparing contracts in the night in order to get Marc Cucurella deal signed on Friday. Medical was perfect and Thomas Tuchel is now waiting for him. 🔵📑 #CFC
