With Marcos Alonso set to leave the club, Chelsea are short of free-kick takers.

Mason Mount and Reece James are the current free-kick takers in the Chelsea team, but new signing Marc Cucurella has vowed to score if given the chance.

“It’s difficult the free-kicks,” he told the media.

“In Brighton I take them. Here, other players can take them. If I have the opportunity, maybe I take one I will score, 100%.”

Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has admitted he’s pleased with the signing of Cucurella, and has urged Chelsea fans to watch out for this signing.

Nevin said: “Anyone who watched the Spaniard last season will tell you that apart from his skill and willingness to get forward and create on the left-hand side, his energy levels are up there with the best.

“I think Chelsea fans are going to love him as a player because of that never stop and never-say-die attitude.”
