Chelsea, Man United and Tottenham all join race for Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries
Race for Dumfries includes Chelsea, Man United and Tottenham
Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are among the clubs looking to sign Internazionale right wing-back Denzel Dumfries, according to a report by Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Nerazzurri had rejected any advances for the Netherlands international during the summer, but his impressive displays during the World Cup have reignited interest in signing him.
Chelsea see the 26-year-old as an alternative to Reece James, who has been a key figure for the Blues both before and since manager Graham Potter’s arrival, but James has struggled with injuries and is currently out.
Man United have also been looking for somebody who can provide an option on the right side of defence beyond Diogo Dalot, and while Aaron Wan-Bissaka has filled that position for the Red Devils since domestic football returned after the World Cup, Dumfries would be considered a significant upgrade.
Both Chelsea and Man United are willing to invest in that position, though it is expected to take at least €60 million for Inter Milan to negotiate for Dumfries.
Spurs are looking at Sporting CP’s Pedro Porro but prefer Dumfries and will look to at least try to sign the Dutchman if Inter are willing to let him leave.
Dumfries has played 20 times for Inter Milan across Serie A and the Champions League this season, recording two goals and three assists.
