Chelsea handed Denzel Dumfries transfer boost
News » Premier League news » Chelsea news
Chelsea have been handed a boost in signing Denzel Dumfries ahead of the January transfer window.
The Blues were linked with the Netherlands right wing-back last summer, but a deal never materialised.
However, they are likely to revive their interest this winter, considering Reece James‘ injury concerns.
James is expected to be fit from his knee injury in December, but his workload needs to be managed.
As a result, they need a quality competitor in the squad and Fabrizio Romano cites that Dumfries is on their radar.
With Inter Milan’s ongoing financial problems, it is claimed that he could be available for around €30 million in January.
Aside from the Blues, Manchester United have also been linked with the Dutchman, but they need to offload first.
The Red Devils don’t plan to pursue a new right-back this summer unless they are able to sell Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
As things stand, there are no offers on the table for the 24-year-old. At best, he could leave on a short-term loan deal.
