Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is interested in signing Brighton left-back and Spain international Marc Cucurella.

Guardiola sees the 23 year old left-back as a possible solution to Manchester City’s problematic left-back area.

Marc Cucurella has impressed in the Premier League since joining Brighton last summer from Spanish club Getafe.

According to TalkSPORT, Brighton owner Tony Bloom believes Cucurella is worth just as much as England defender Ben White, who Brighton sold to Arsenal for £50m only last summer.

Premier League rivals Chelsea are also interested in a move for Cucurella but it is believed Manchester City are leading the race for the 23 year old.

Cucurella won the Brighton Player of the Year award.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are interested in signing this key Manchester City player as replacement for Frenkie de Jong who is set to join rivals Manchester United.
