Chelsea favorites to sign Dumfries
The Blues are ‘big favourites‘ to sign Inter’s wingback as his club gave the green light for him to leave in 2023. This claim has been made by Corriere dello Sport report which says ‘it is certain’ Dumfries ‘will leave’ Milan. Nerazzuri would prefer to sell him and have him back on loan for the rest of the season.
The reported cost of Dumfries’ potential transfer is said to be £ 40 million. It seems a reasonable fee considering his key role in Simone Inzaghi’s squad.
The wingback could be Potter’s first signing and be used as an alternative to Reece James who is currently out injured.
