Chelsea reportedly weigh up a £27m bid for Getafe's Marc Cucurella, who is seen as an ideal alternative to Leicester City's Ben Chilwell.

Chelsea are reportedly ready to table an offer of £27m for Getafe's Marc Cucurella.

The 21-year-old, who recently penned a permanent deal with the La Liga outfit from Barcelona, impressed in the 2019-20 campaign as he registered one goal and six assists from 37 league outings.

Chelsea are understood to be in the market for a new left-back and have been heavily linked with a swoop for Leicester City's Ben Chilwell, but the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic may force the Blues to seek out cheaper alternatives.

According to AS, Chelsea have identified Cucurella as an ideal signing if they are unable to pry Chilwell away from the King Power Stadium.

The report claims that the Blues are willing to fork out £27m for the 22-year-old, who is under contract with Getafe until 2024.

Frank Lampard's men have secured a spot in the Champions League for the 2020-21 campaign after they enjoyed a 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on the final day of the Premier League season.
