Chelsea set to prepare bid of £27m for Getafe defender Marc Cucurella

Chelsea are believed to be in the process of preparing an offer of £27m to represent to Getafe for their defender Marc Cucurella.

According to Spanish publication AS via Daily Mail revealed that Chelsea have been monitoring Cucurella's movements in a bid to sign him if they don't land Ben Chilwell's signature.

Getafe paid €30m to sign the 22-year-old on a permanent deal from Barcelona following his season-long loan spell at the club.

Cucurella scored one goal and made five assists in 37 games this season, which inspired Getafe sixth place on the La Liga standings.

The rising star has been capped for the Spain U21 national team.
