Chelsea closing in on Premier League defender as Frank Lampard hope to solve defensive issues
The Blues close in on a deal to solve their defensive issues, while Manchester City accept they can pull off a deal to sign Lionel Messi this summer.
Chelsea are approaching a £40m deal to sign Brighton defender Lewis Dunk and solve their defensive issues, as indicated by a report.
Chelsea conceded 54 Premier League goals this season, the most of any side in the main 10. Accordingly, Frank Lampard knows about the need to find a permanent fix to their defensive issues.
The Blues had considered Declan Rice, who has played as a centre-back and midfield for West Ham this term.
In any case, as per report on Sunday, Lewis Dunk has developed as the “top target” for a move to Stamford Bridge.
The Englishman, a deep rooted Chelsea fan, also accepts a deal is close as he wants to move away from the south coast.
Tottenham Hotspur are also enthusiastic about Lewis Dunk, however it is Chelsea who seem to be winning the race.
Lewis Dunk started his career with the Seagulls at 10 years old. He turned out to be just the fourth player from the club to win a senior England top, doing as such in 2018.
