Brighton captain Lewis Dunk is one of four centre-backs that Manchester City will look to target in the summer transfer window, according to the Times.
With the Citizens having failed to replace Vincent Kompany, and the future of John Stones uncertain, manager Pep Guardiola is looking for new recruits in the centre of defence.
Dunk has been at Brighton for his entire career, but his performances for the Seagulls have been impressing scouts. Chelsea have also been linked with the 28-year-old in recent months, but it appears City could well enter the race for his signature as well.
The England international isn’t the only player on the Manchester club’s list of targets, though. Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar, Villarreal’s Pau Torres and Benfica’s Ruben Dias are three other players who are being looked at.
Dunk is probably unlikely to be City’s number one priority, but the fact that his name is even being considered by the club’s recruitment department is a surprise.
