Marc Cucurella has completed his move to Brighton from Getafe in La Liga with a contract until June 2026, subject to international clearance.
The 23-year-old can play as a left-back or a winger and arrives after Brighton triggered his £ 15.4million (€ 18million) release clause, becoming the club’s third summer signing after Enock Mwepu and Kjell Scherpen.
A product of Espanyol’s youth system, Cucurella joined Barcelona in 2012 before loan spells with Eibar and Getafe, which he joined permanently in 2020.
Discussing the player’s transfer to Amex, Brighton head coach Graham Potter said: “We have been keen to bring Marc to the club, and we are really delighted to finally welcome him here and are delighted to start to work with him.
“He had a fantastic upbringing in the youth teams at Barcelona and he made a real impression in La Liga and within the national configuration. He is a versatile player, and he will add competition and options to the team.”
Selected once by Spain, Cucurella made 75 La Liga appearances in two seasons at Getafe and was also part of the Spanish squad that won silver at Tokyo 2020.
He could be in line to make his Brighton debut after the international break in Brentford on September 11.
