Chelsea Signing £62m Cucurella Branded 'Nonsensical'

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has branded Chelsea's signing of Marc Cucurella as "nonsensical".

Chelsea have paid Brighton a fee rising to £62m for the Spain left-back.

Keown reckons the defender isn't worth the exorbitant fee, and feels the Blues brought him in panic.

He told talkSPORT: "Chelsea have gone out and paid £60-odd million for Cucurella – I think that's nonsensical.

“It's an incredible amount of money. I think it's too much. Cucurella, as good as he is, I think there are still players out there that are better.

"To pay that kind of money with Ben Chilwell still there, [Marcos] Alonso's still there.

"It does feel like it's panic buying."
