Transfer News: Tottenham pondering a summer move for Lewis Dunk
According to transfer news from Sports Mole, Tottenham are pondering over a move for Lewis Dunk of Brighton. Apparently, those at the club admire Dunk and Spurs are keen to add someone in his ilk.
Heading into the summer transfer window, Tottenham are said to be looking at a new central defender, someone who can be vocal and act as a leader at the back while also boasting of Premier League experience. And Dunk is someone that the club have kept their eyes on.
Lewis Dunk rose through the youth ranks of Brighton and made his first-team debut for the Seagulls in League One back during the 2009-10 season. The academy graduate has since been a bonafide witness to the club’s journey through the divisions in English football.
He played a bit-part role as a youngster when Brighton secured promotion to the Championship in 2011 before featuring prominently in the Seagulls’ promotion-winning campaign in the second-tier in 2016-17.
Dunk has since established himself as a quality centre-back in the Premier League over the past three seasons, making 136 top-flight appearances for his boyhood club. The defender has made just one appearance for the England senior team, which came in 2018.
