Chelsea-linked Denzel Dumfries is reportedly open to joining the club. The right-back currently plays in the Serie A for Inter Milan.
However, the Italian giants will be open to selling him for the right price. It looks like the rumor mills for the January transfer have already begun.
CHELSEA AND DENZEL DUMFRIES TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Denzel Dumfries would be potentially interested in a move to Chelsea. The report also claims that the Blues want to sign a new right-back in January. Graham Potter reportedly wants someone to compete with Reece James for the right-back spot. They were also reportedly interested in signing him in the summer transfer window.
However, they decided to go with the signings of Kalidou Koulibaly and Wesley Fofana. Although, it looks like the defensive signings have not ended the interest of Chelsea. The report also claims that the club are still monitoring the situation of the full-back. However, they are yet to place a bid to Inter Milan for the player. It also claims that the Italian giants are asking for a fee of 35-40 million for their full-back.
THERE IS ALSO INTEREST IN THE DEAL FROM THE SIDE OF THE PLAYER
The report also claims that the representatives of the full-back are also keeping an eye on the negotiations. It also mentions that Dumfries is open to the move if both teams can agree on a fee. However, he will not force a move to the Premier League giants. Dumfries is reportedly happy to stay with the Italian giants.
There is also a chance of a player plus cash deal happening. It is because Inter Milan are interested in signing Trevor Chalobah. The midfielder/defender has not got enough minutes this season. Hence, Trevor is open to a permanent or a loan move. There is also a chance that the deal will include the extension of the loan deal of Romelu Lukaku. The forward has a long contract with Chelsea. However, the forward wants to stay at Inter Milan for the next season.
Hence, Chelsea could get the overall price down for Dumfries. However, Dumfries will have to compete hard for game time at the club ahead of Reece James. Reece James has also signed a new contract extension with the Blues until 2028.
