Manchester United are reportedly considering a swoop for Brighton & Hove Albion centre-back Lewis Dunk.
Dunk has impressed for Brighton since the Seagulls arrived in the Premier League, and he made his debut for the England national team in last week's 3-0 win over USA.
The 26-year-old only signed a new long-term contract with Brighton last month, but according to The Express, United are considering a move for the 6ft 4in ace to boost their defence.
United boss Jose Mourinho tried and failed to sign a new centre-back during the recent summer transfer window, and he is still believed to be desperate to improve that area of the field due to the team's struggles this season.
Dunk played in all 38 of Brighton's Premier League matches last season and has missed just one league fixture for Chris Hughton's side this term.
