Brighton & Hove Albion left-back Marc Cucurella has submitted a transfer request as Manchester City attempt to make him their final summer signing. Cucurella is trying to force through a move to the Premier League champions amid Brighton’s stubborn stance on their £50million asking price.

On Thursday, reports claimed Man City were ready to walk away from talks with Brighton due to their unwillingness to match the Seagulls’ hefty demands. They have so far tabled a £40m bid for the Spaniard, leaving a £10m gap between the two clubs’ valuations and plenty of work to do at the negotiation table.

Despite Cucurella asking Brighton not to stand in his way, they have continued to dig in their heels under pressure from one of Europe’s elite clubs. The Telegraph have since reported that Man City are readying a final push to land Cucurella in the next few days but remain reluctant to meet his £50m asking price.

And now, according to Fabrizio Romano, the 24-year-old has handed in a transfer request at the Amex Stadium to push through his move to Manchester. But he has admitted the discussions are complicated due to Brighton’s demands, and an outcome to the situation is expected soon.
