Lewis Dunk news

Brighton won't sell Lewis Dunk

Chelsea have not made any bid for Brighton & Hove Albion defender Lewis Dunk, a report from TalkSPORT claims.



The Blues are on the search for a new centre-back this summer and it recently emerged that they could pay around £40m for the Seagulls captain.

However, according to TalkSPORT, there has been no contact between the Blues and the Seagulls and Dunk is expected to remain in the south Coast next term.

Dunk has stated in the past that he is a boyhood Chelsea fan, but Graham Potter's side have no desire to sell him for any price during the current transfer window.

It is added that the England international is happy to remain with the Seagulls next season and won't have any complaints over the decision made by the club.

Aside from Dunk, West Ham United's Declan Rice has emerged as another option to bolster the central defence, but the Blues have been put off by the Hammers' £80m price tag for his services.
