Crystal Palace and Norwich are set to do battle for the services of Brighton defender Lewis Dunk when the transfer window opens.
Dunk has been a revelation in the heart of the Seagulls defence this season as Chris Hughton’s side have mounted a push for promotion to the Premier League.
Brighton head into the final two games of the season with a real chance of winning automatic promotion and depending on how successful they are, will determine where Dunk plays his football next season.
There is a chance Brighton could be swapping places with the Canaries, who face a fight to stay in the top flight, and any potential move is on hold until everyone knows just exactly where they will be next season.
Palace boss Alan Pardew and Canaries chief Alex Neil have put a new central defender high on their wanted list, and considering Dunk is one of the best prospects around, it is no surprise they are keen.
