Albion defender Lewis Dunk could be set to swap the AMEX for Stamford Bridge.

That's if the latest odds are anything to go by.

Oddschecker today said the chances of Dunk moving to Chelsea now stand at 3/1.

It has been claimed that Chelsea are keeping tabs on the 28-year-old defender with some sources reporting that it could cost them £45 million to prise him away from the Sussex coast.

Albion’s player of the year, an award he scooped in his first season as skipper, is also a dedicated Chelsea fan.

The Argus:

He is said to have idolised John Terry growing up and has a dog named Didier, named after prolific former Stamford Bridge striker Drogba.

Fans noticed last month that the fan favourite had been left out of promotional pictures for the club's new kit, sparking speculation he may be off.

But a source recently told The Argus that Dunk is still more likely to remain at the AMEX next season.

They said there is a "95 per cent chance" he will stay on the south coast and thus continue as their captain for the 2019/20 campaign.

Dunk has been one of the Seagulls' stand out performers since they were promoted to the Premier League in 2017, playing in 36 of their 38 fixtures this season.

The Argus:

After being named players’ player of the year for the second successive season last month, he said he still has a lot to learn as captain.

He said: “I’ve been captain for the first year in my career and it has been a learning curve on that side.

"I’ve got a long way to go on that side of it and I’m enjoying the process of being a captain.”

He also said he believed the team was changing for the better under head coach Graham Potter, with Albion recording their highest Premier League points tally to date in the former Swansea City manager’s first season at the Amex.
