As Arsenal closes in on Oleksandr Zinchenko, Fabrizio Romano takes to Twitter to update on Tottenham goal Marc Cucurella.
Antonio Conte has been keeping an eye on the Brighton left-back, who had a fantastic debut season in the Premier League last season, and the Seagulls are now valuing him at 50m as a result of his performances.
Romano believes a move will be made by Manchester City as they look to replace Zinchenko, who has basically joined Arsenal. We now await official confirmation from the Gunners, although Pep Guardiola and Kyle Walker have already said their final goodbyes during a press conference.
Tottenham's chances of signing Cucurella will be harmed by the move of their bitter adversaries for the Ukraine international.
Romano adds that Manchester City have already made good progress in terms of personal terms with the Spaniard, with a complete verbal agreement coming to an end.
Below you can see what a trusted Italian journalist posted in full.

Unless they can somehow hijack Manchester City's move for Cucurella, Conte and Fabio Paratici, the director of football at Tottenham, will have to look into other options in the left-back department.
After making 39 appearances in all competitions last season, the 23-year-old has found interest in the team, both scoring one goal and also providing two assists.
As Conte aims to expand his options on the left, Pep Guardiola is closing in on a Cucurella agreement.
Before he decided to join Juventus, there was interest in Andrea Cambiaso, and there has also been respect for RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol, who can play both on the left and the centre of defence.
Spurs have expressed an interest in Burnley's Dwight McNeil, who played on the left flank for the Clarets in the Premier League, who has the stamina to change at wingback.
Conte is keen to sign another contract in this area, with Sergio Reguilon likely heading for the exit door, so be sure to keep an eye on the situation.
