One of the last names to be associated with all three clubs is the young Spaniard Marc Cucurella.

Who is Marc Cucurella?

Cucurella is a 21 year old left side player who plays for the Spanish team Getafe on loan from Barcelona.

The Spaniard can play in any position on the left side of the field, but has been used primarily in the role of left midfielder this season.

He was born in Alella, Spain, and began his career in the Espanyol youth teams before moving to Barcelona in the summer of 2012, where he made his way through the various Camp Nou youth teams.

Cucurella also recently spent time on loan to Eibar before joining Getafe for a season-long loan at the start of the 2019/20 campaign.

He has five appearances for the Spanish U21 team.

How did you perform this season?

The player has started all La Liga games for Getafe since completing his summer move in the club. In his 25 league games so far he has one goal and five assists.

The young man also has six other appearances in the Europa League but was unable to record a goal or an assist in the competition.

How much will it cost?

According to Cadena Cope, Getafe is looking to turn his move into a permanent deal by paying around € 16 million (£ 13.4 million) in Barcelona for 60% of his rights.

However, the deal will include a release clause in its contract for € 25 million (£ 22.7 million), a tax Tottenham is said to be willing to pay for Cucurella.

Arsenal is also said to be keeping an eye on the widower.

Who else is interested?

According to the report, Tottenham and Arsenal are not the only clubs to be connected in a move for the player.

Chelsea have also joined the competition for his signing, with Goal reporting that the Blues have explored him this season.

Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Monchengladbach, Atletico Madrid and Seville are also said to be willing to pay the tax for the 21-year-old, which means that the trio of London clubs will have to fight competition from all over Europe if they want to bring Cucurella to the Premier League in the summer.
