Chelsea's Cucurella swap option

Chelsea offered Levi Colwill to Brighton & Hove Albion on loan as part of a deal for Marc Cucurella, according to The Times.

The Blues are thought to be leading the race for the Spaniard, though Manchester City remain interested.

Brighton are said to be keen on a permanent move for Colwill, rather than a loan, having already seen former Chelsea academy man Tariq Lamptey thrive in their defence
