Seagulls rivals target £45m bid
Brighton are bracing themselves for a £45million offer from Leicester City for Lewis Dunk as Harry Maguire could be on the move.
Manchester United have reportedly submitted a 'world record' £80m offer for Maguire, and if it was to go through, then the Foxes are coming straight for Dunk.
The Seagulls central defender is Leicester's number one choice to replace Maguire should he move on and the club are unlikely to knock back the kind of figures that are being mentioned.
The Sun state that the Red Devils will pay £60m up front for England international Maguire, with a further £20m included in add-ons.
It is said that Maguire will travel to Manchester to undergo a medical today.
However reports at the Leicester end are saying the offer will be knocked back and they will refuse to sell unless the player pushes for a move away.
Either way Dunk remains a target for Leicester, who are likely to sell Maguire at some point and will then come straight for the Albion star as a replacement.
