Chelsea are ready to move for Brighton captain Lewis Dunk.

Chelsea are now targeting a £40m deal for Dunk.

Dunk has been linked to Chelsea in the past, but the Blues could be stepping up their pursuit.

The Sun says Chelsea are closing in on a £40m deal to try and beat Tottenham to the Brighton captain.

Meanwhile, the fact that Dunk is a Chelsea fan is seen as a big boost to the Blues’ hopes of landing the 28-year-old centre-back.
