35 Premier League appearances as part of the Seagulls impressive 2021/22 campaign earmarked Cucurella to move on, but no change has been made.
However, despite the speculation, Brighton CEO Paul Barber claimed no offers have come in, and the club’s stance on Cucurella remains unchanged.
“We haven’t received any bids”, as per reports from Sky Sports.
“He was our double player of the year, he had a fantastic season.
“We’re very, very happy with Marc, he’s done a great job since coming to Brighton.”
City have looked to focus their attention in other areas of their squad in recent weeks with attacking duo Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez joined by England star Kalvin Phillips.
Cucurella is under contract at the AMEX Stadium until 2026 and Graham Potter’s side are unlikely to sell him for less than £35m, if City do make an official bid.
