“A goal threat as well”: Tottenham urged to go after £20m-rated Premier League star

Tottenham urged to sign Lewis Dunk by former star Paul Stewart

Speaking to This Is Futbol (h/t Express), former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paul Stewart has opined that the Lilywhites should push to sign Brighton & Hove Albion captain Lewis Dunk this summer.

Tottenham being in the market for reinforcements at the heart of the defence this summer is no top secret, amid claims that Toby Alderweireld has asked to leave the club. A move for Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu is on the verge of completion, but there could be another defensive addition needed. (h/t Express)

And Stewart has urged the club to go after Lewis Dunk over any other option because of his commanding presence in both the penalty boxes.

“Dunk would be ideal. I’ve said it from the start of last season because he has impressed me, and he’s a goal threat as well. Not only is he a commanding centre-half, but he’s a goal threat, and they’re hard to come by.”

Dunk has spent his entire career with Brighton & Hove Albion and has been an integral part of their incredible journey from League One to the Premier League. An ever-present since their return to the top-flight, the 29-year-old is the club captain as well and has done an admirable job.

Valued at £20m, Tottenham’s rivals Arsenal have been linked with a move for Dunk in the past, although they are now close to signing his teammate, Ben White.

More Tottenham Hotspur News:

A towering, no-nonsense defender, Dunk has experience at this level and has proven himself in the Premier League. And as Stewart mentions, he does offer a fair bit of goal threat as well, having scored eight times across the last two seasons. He might not be the most fancied option, but the 29-year-old would certainly shore things up at the back for Spurs.
