Man City are going all out to sign a perfect 55 million player, according to Romano ...

Following the sale of Oleksandr Zincehnko to Arsenal, Fabrizio Romano has stated that Manchester City would push hard to sign Marc Cucurella from Brighton & Hove Albion.

Pep Guardiola is a huge supporter of the Spanish fullback and sees him as the perfect replacement for Zincehnko, although Brighton may demand as much as 55 million for their star defender, according to a Sky Sports Italia journalist.

Cucurella only joined Brighton last year, but has already made an enormous impact in the Premier League, with the Spanish youth international one of the biggest draws in England last season. The likes of City are looking for a left-back this summer.

City have been looking for a natural left-back to complement Guardiolas' system for a while, and the Catalan manager has settled on Cucurella as the player who might stay in the position for many years to come, but only if they can strike a contract with Brighton to sign the 23-year-old.

City have seen more players depart the club in the form of Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, and the aforementioned Zinchenko, and according to Romano, Cucurella is Guardiolas ideal candidate to replace the Arsenal-bound Ukrainian.

Marc Cucurella from Brighton has always been and remains the main focus of Romano's efforts. He is a player who wants to sign him. He loves him. Pep Guardiola and others inside the club are convinced that Cucurella will match Manchester City's style.

Cucurella might be City's next big-money signing.

Cucurella had a fantastic first year in England with Brighton, and with City looking to sign a left-back this summer, the Seagulls defender seems to be the ideal fit to take over the position and compete with Joao Cancelo for the position.

The price tag is reasonable, and Brighton, who only signed Cucurella 12 months ago, has the financial resources to match Graham Potters' asking price for his star fullback, who may suit Guardiolas' system to a Tee in the future.
