Newcastle United Eyeing Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella for Summer Move

Newcastle United are reportedly eyeing Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella in a move that could significantly bolster their squad. The Spanish fullback, who had a disappointing debut season at Stamford Bridge, is now emerging as a top target for the Magpies.

Cucurella, who was signed by Chelsea from Brighton & Hove Albion for a hefty £62 million, has struggled to live up to his price tag. His performances have been underwhelming, leading to criticism from fans and even Chelsea owner, Todd Boehly. This has led to speculation about his future at the club, with a move away from Stamford Bridge looking increasingly likely.

Newcastle’s interest in Cucurella is not surprising, given that the club’s sporting director, Dan Ashworth, was responsible for the player’s transfer from Getafe to Brighton during his tenure as technical director at the Amex Stadium. Ashworth is reportedly planning a reunion with the Spaniard, with Newcastle potentially securing the defender for a cut-price deal of around £30 million.

The Magpies are in the market for a new left-back, and Cucurella’s potential arrival could provide a significant boost to their defensive options. However, he’s not the only player on their radar. Newcastle are also reportedly considering a move for Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney.

As the summer transfer window unfolds, it will be interesting to see how these potential moves play out. Will Cucurella find a fresh start at Newcastle? And how will Chelsea’s squad shape up for the next season? These are questions that will be answered in the coming weeks.
