Chelsea are reportedly keeping a close eye on many centre-backs across the Europe.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Chelsea are keen on Brighton centre-back Lewis Dunk.
His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including Chelsea.
Frank Lampard is looking to shore up his defensive options and Brighton’s Lewis Dunk happens to be a target.
The report claims that Chelsea manager has extensively scouted Dunk and is considering a move for the centre-back.
The Chelsea manager Frank Lampard wants to continue to strengthening his squad so they’re able to compete both domestically and in the Champions League next season.
Lewis Dunk would provide a good variety to Chelsea’s defense.
According to the report, “Chelsea are pondering a move for Brighton centre-back Lewis Dunk. Frank Lampard wants to reinvigorate his defence this summer after they conceded an astonishing 54 goals in the Premier League. And Football Insider says Lampard is considering 28-year-old Dunk. The Englishman has attracted interest from Arsenal and Leicester City in the past, having played well for Albion in their past three seasons in the Premier League. The move might come as a surprise given Dunk has spent his entire career with Brighton. However, the fact he has started 110 out of their 114 Premier League matches over the past three seasons proves his reliability as a solid top-flight centre-back. It is reported that the Seagulls stalwart would be available for £30m, which could help the Blues as they have already spent big on Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.”

Brighton are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the defender, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
Good signing for Chelsea?
Chelsea in particular need to sort out a centre-back for the next season and the 28-year-old could be a solid signing for them.
The 28-year-old England international could be a very good squad player for Frank Lampard over the next few years. He is at the peak of his career right now and Lampard could bring out the best in him.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Chelsea.
How strong that interest is and whether Chelsea will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
