According to The Times via Caught Offside, Chelsea have contacted Premier League side Brighton over the possibility of signing Lewis Dunk.
The 28 year old England international has been one of the key performers for Brighton in recent seasons and he is valued for around £50 million.
Brighton have reportedly told the defender that they won’t stand in his way of joining a top club like Chelsea should a reasonable offer be made.
Leicester City were heavily linked with a move for the Brighton defender last summer and it is believed they could return with a bid this January.
