Ian Wright has urged Liverpool to sign Brighton defender Lewis Dunk.

The 25-year-old has impressed with some talismanic performances at the back for Chris Hugton’s promoted side in the Premier League so far.

Dunk has played every minute of Brighton’s top-flight campaign so far and has forged a strong partnership with Republic of Ireland international Shane Duffy.

The former Bristol Rovers defender has helped Brighton keep a better defensive record than Liverpool after eight games in the Premier League so far.

The Reds have conceded 12 times despite a goalless draw with Manchester United last weekend, while Brighton have only shipped 10 goals.

Former Arsenal striker Wright claimed that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp should be keeping a close eye on Brighton defender Dunk.

“He reminds me of Martin Keown,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Every time a player pulls his foot back for a shot, you see him fly in like Martin Keown used to do. He’s brilliant. I could see him at any team outside the top four.

“I think Liverpool should be looking at him. He should be on Liverpool’s radar.”

Liverpool signed AS Roma winger Mohamed Salah, Chelsea teenager Dominic Solanke, Hull City defender Andy Robertson and Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the summer transfer window.

The Reds signed four players in the summer transfer window.
