Terrible news for West Ham as Chelsea reportedly close in on 'unreal' Marc Cucurella signing

Chelsea signing left-back Marc Cucurella this summer could lead Brighton right to West Ham United target Angelino.

Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg claims that Brighton will make a move for RB Leipzig ace Angelino if Chelsea end up signing the 24-year-old Spaniard this summer.

The 25-year-old Leipzig ace would be a great signing for West Ham but it seems as though Chelsea signing Marc Cucurella could be a huge problem for us.

Sky Sports reckon that Chelsea are now in advanced talks to sign the Spaniard for around £50 million.

And if that deal gets done, the Hammers could face a real problem…

Chelsea signing Marc Cucurella could be terrible news for West Ham

It’s no surprise why the Blues might want to sign the 24-year-old Brighton star.

We Are Brighton describe Cucurella as an ‘unreal’ player.

And if Chelsea win the race for the former Barcelona man, Brighton will then explore a deal to sign West Ham target Angelino, according to Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg:

Missing out on Angelino to Brighton would be a big blow for West Ham.

The 25-year-old bagged two goals and five assists in 29 Bundesliga games for Leipzig last season (Who Scored).

During those appearances, the Spaniard averaged one tackle, one interception and 1.1 clearances per match (Who Scored).

Angelino is highly energetic, possesses pace in abundance and has unbelievable technical ability at his disposal.

The Leipzig star would be a huge upgrade on Aaron Cresswell, that’s for sure.

It seems as though Chelsea signing Marc Cucurella will be terrible news for West Ham as far as our hopes of signing Angelino are concerned, however.

And if it’s not Angelino, Brighton may well try to sign one of the Hammers’ other left-back targets. David Moyes had better act fast.
