Chelsea are reportedly eyeing up Barcelona's Marc Cucurella as a potential summer signing, with the Spaniard currently on loan at Getafe.

Chelsea are reportedly keeping an eye on Barcelona's Marc Cucurella, who is currently on loan at fellow Spanish side Getafe.

The Spaniard is yet to make a La Liga appearance for Quique Setien's side, having spent last season on loan at Eibar, and the left-sided player is allegedly set to leave Barca at the end of the season.

According to, the Catalan giants have agreed a deal worth around €6m (£5.5m) to sell Cucurella to Getafe, with Barca reportedly not keen on recalling the youngster, who can play as a left-back or midfielder.

As a result, Chelsea are said to be looking at Cucurella as a potential signing, but the Spaniard allegedly remains low on their transfer list as they prioritise deals for Porto's Alex Telles and Leicester City's Ben Chilwell.

However, Chelsea have been boosted by the recent form of Marcos Alonso, who has enjoyed a consistent spell at left-back for Frank Lampard's side over the past few weeks.

Cucurella, who has made 24 league appearances for Getafe this season, is reportedly also a target for Napoli, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach.
