Chelsea will supposedly attempt to strike deals for centre-back pairing Lewis Dunk and John Stones during the summer transfer window.

Chelsea are reportedly planning a double swoop for centre-back pairing John Stones and Lewis Dunk during the summer transfer window.

Following Nathan Ake's arrival at Manchester City, Stones appears to have fallen further down Pep Guardiola's pecking order, and the England international has been tipped to head for the Etihad exit door this summer.

Meanwhile, a recent report suggested that Chelsea have approached Brighton & Hove Albion over a possible deal for Dunk, who would supposedly cost in the region of £40m.

Now, The Mirror reports that Chelsea will aim to strike deals for both centre-backs as Frank Lampard looks to shore up his defence ahead of next season.

The report claims that the Blues will prioritise the signing of Dunk but could make an attempt to take Stones on loan at Stamford Bridge for the 2020-21 campaign.

Having conceded 54 Premier League goals last season, the Blues are said to be eyeing defensive reinforcements after adding Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner to their attacking ranks.

Stones will see his current deal at Man City expire in the summer of 2022, while Dunk's contract with Brighton runs to 2023.
