Tottenham Hotspur: Italian source shares Marc Cucurella interest

Tottenham Hotspur: Italian source shares Marc Cucurella interest -Premier League News

According to a report from Italian outlet Tutto Juve (via Sport Witness), Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Brighton wing-back Marc Cucurella. 

The lowdown: Star arrival

The 23-year-old arrived in England at the start of the season from Getafe and has enjoyed a stellar debut campaign in the Premier League.

Formerly of the youth setup at Espanyol and Barcelona, the marauding left-back amassed 209 appearances in Spanish football before moving to Brighton, where he’s registered two assists in 35 showings.

Now, another move could already be on the cards for the Spain international…

The latest: Major interest

As per Tutto Juve, translated by SW, Tottenham, as well as Fabio Paratici’s former employers, Juventus, are ‘evaluating’ whether or not to move for Cucurella this summer.

Under contract until 2026 (Transfermarkt), it’s claimed that the one-cap Spain ace would cost €20million (£17.1million).

Described as the ‘smartest kid in class’ due to his ability to read the game by former Eibar manager Jose Luis Mendilibar, Cucurella has started 32 league games for Graham Potter’s side this season.

Can you tell us where all these ex-Spurs stars are from? Federico Fazio...

The verdict: Reguilon’s replacement?

Blighted by injuries in recent times, Spanish wing-back Sergio Reguilon has been extensively linked with a move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer and Cucurella could be the man in line to fill the void.

Primarily operating in a back five as a wing-back in a 3-5-2 formation at Brighton,  the Spaniard has also played higher up as a left-winger and as a more conventional left-back. Therefore, as Antonio Conte also prefers to employ a similar style, it’s no surprise that interest would be forthcoming.

Will Tottenham finish in the top 4 this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

So far this season the energetic Spaniard has earned a 7.06 Sofascore average match rating with an impressive 5.3 duels won per game – and would represent superb value for money at the mooted price point.
