Brighton have slapped a £50m asking price on Lewis Dunk’s head amid interest from Chelsea, reports The Times.
Frank Lampard is eyeing defensive reinforcements this month now Chelsea’s FIFA-imposed transfer ban has been lifted.
Chelsea have struggled at the back this season and Lampard still hasn’t established his first-choice defensive pairing.
The Blues have been heavily linked with a move to re-sign Nathan Ake from Bournemouth but it has now emerged they are interested in Dunk.
Dunk has been a huge player for Brighton in the last few years and Graham Potter’s side would be reluctant to lose the England international.
