Tony Cascarino would welcome Chelsea doing a deal for Brighton’s consistent central defender Lewis Dunk

Now we all know that Frank Lampard is seeking to put a side together that is worthy of challenging Liverpool and Manchester City for that Premier League title next season, and already has started on working on the squad by landing two top attackers.

However, there are some questions at the back, and Frank Lampard needs to delve into that transfer kitty and find a leader to sort out the club’s defensive problems, with a number of possible players that could solve their issues

According to reports on the SUN website, we have already made their move to try and sign the Brighton Captian and have reportedly offered around £40 million to conclude a deal.

And amid the speculation, Cascarino has opened up and admitted that he would welcome the possible signing of Dunk this transfer window, he told the TalkSport website: “He’s not just a brute that wins headers. He’s a fine footballer,” he remarked about the 28-year-old.

“If you said to me, of the bottom half of the table who I think is the very best centre-half, I think it’s him.”

Dunk is a brilliant defender in the Premier League, we think, and we should definitely make a move for a man that has the leadership abilities to be a real star at the club for the next few seasons.

We rate Dunk very highly, and the fact he is a Chelsea fan, would make it all the better that he is signed.
