Brighton & Hove Albion have secured the signing of Marc Cucurella, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

The Italian journalist has claimed on Twitter that it is a ‘done deal’ scenario. The Seagulls have activated his €18 million release clause, and the money has been paid in full.

The 23-year-old will fly to England today to sign his contract.

Journalist Aden-Jay Wood has suggested on Twitter that the player has agreed personal terms and that he is all set to join his new club.

In another tweet, Wood has claimed that Brighton keeper Christian Walton is close to joining League One side Ipswich Town on a season-long loan deal.

Brighton have been very impressive under Graham Potter this season, and they are now looking to make some signings to bolster their squad before Tuesday’s deadline.

They sold Ben White to Arsenal for around £50m and have money to spend.

Cucurella is a highly-rated versatile midfielder who would be a cracking signing for the club.

He initially joined Getafe on loan from Barcelona, and the move was later made permanent last summer.

He made 39 appearances in all competitions for the La Liga outfit last season, scoring three goals.

The Spaniard is a wide midfielder but he can also play as a left-back.

Brighton are also looking to sign Daniel James from Manchester United, while the club have a long-term interest in Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard.
