Manchester City are close to completing the signing of Brighton & Hove Albion left-back Marc Cucurella, according to a report on Sports Mole.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is keen on signing a left-back this summer and has identified 23 year old Cucurella as the ideal signing.

Cucurell picked up Brighton’s Player of the Season award after enjoying a successful first year with Brighton after joining from Getafe last summer.

Manchester City are on the verge of signing Cucurella for a fee between £25m and £30m and a deal could be confirmed as soon as next week.

Cucurella, who has also been linked with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, recently admitted that he would find it difficult to turn down a move to the Etihad Stadium if the opportunity was presented to him this summer.
