Chelsea willing to spend double asking price for Getafe fullback Cucurella

Chelsea are willing to double Getafe's asking price for Marc Cucurella.

The Spanish left-back, who can also play in midfield, only recently made permanent his loan move to Getafe from Barcelona.

Leicester's Ben Chilwell remains Frank Lampard's priority left-back target.

The Foxes have eased their demands of £80m, but a deal is still anything but a sure thing.

And the Daily Mail says Cucurella is being considered as an alternative.

The 22-year-old is valued at £22m and Chelsea would be willing to double that price to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
