Transfer gossip: Chelsea closing in on Dunk deal, Sun on Sunday say

Some of the transfer speculation involving Chelsea in Sunday’s newspapers…

The Sun on Sunday say Chelsea are closing in on a £40m deal to sign centre-back Lewis Dunk from Brighton.

The Blues made enquiries about Dunk in January and are looking to sign at least one central defender this summer.

Tottenham are also said to be keen on Dunk, who has made one appearance for England.

But he is Chelsea fan and The Sun on Sunday declare that the player “believes he is on his way to Stamford Bridge.”

Chelsea are considering a move for Watford’s veteran goalkeeper Ben Foster, also according to The Sun on Sunday.

A host of keepers have been linked with Chelsea amid speculation over the future of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Kepa was dropped by boss Frank Lampard, who has been tipped to look to offload the Spaniard this summer.

The Sun on Sunday say former England international Foster, 37, is being considered by both Chelsea and Everton as a possible money-saving signing.

The newspaper also say Lampard is considering another ex-England keeper, Joe Hart, who is a free agent after leaving Burnley.

Meanwhile, the Sunday Mirror tout Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel as a possible signing for Chelsea.

And Leicester’s England international left-back Ben Chilwell continues to be linked with a move to the Bridge.

The Sunday Times reports that Chelsea are closing in on a deal to sign Chilwell following a “breakthrough” in talks with Leicester.
