Man United still have eyes on Inter Milan full-back, Denzel Dumfries.
Erik ten Hag has already acquired two defenders for his new-look Manchester United side, with the Dutchman seemingly keen on building from the back.
Tyrell Malacia and Lisandro Martinez followed Ten Hag from the Eredivisie. Now, Ten Hag has eyes on his fellow Dutch compatriot, Denzel Dumfries.
The Inter Milan man has been linked with a Reds switch already this summer.
Over the last 24 hours, Calcio Mercato have provided us another update on that front.
They state that the Premier League ‘looks at Inter with attention’, with Dumfries attracting ‘special observers’.
United and Chelsea are ‘monitoring the situation’, while Inter would ask for a fixed price of £33m (€40m), to let the right-sided defender leave just a year after making the move to the Serie A club.
Interestingly, Calcio Mercato state that Inter Milan are already looking at potential replacements, which hints there’s a genuine possibility that Dumfries leaves during this window.
The article describes the Dumfries saga as in the ‘hot hours’ suggesting that this proposed deal could start moving pretty quickly in the not too distant future. With the Premier League starting in a little over a week, it makes sense as clubs try to get their signings in before the big kick-off.
Dumfries feels like someone who’d fit in line nicely with the style of play that Ten Hag likes. He also gives off the vibe of someone who’d be a direct upgrade on both Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
I will say this, though. There are other areas that need strengthening first. At least one new attacker is a must, while the club should also be pushing hard to sign another central player.
