Chelsea have entered pole position to sign World Cup star and Inter Milan wing-back Denzel Dumfries, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Boehly backs Chelsea…
Owner Todd Boehly invested significantly in the summer window as he made a serious statement of intent when it comes to the transfer market.
Indeed, £241 million was spent on former boss Thomas Tuchel’s squad, but after the German’s sacking, attention turns to new manager Graham Potter and whether he can get the most out of an expensive squad.
In their bid to become a major Premier League force again, we are likely to see numerous reports of Chelsea’s intent and a new claim has surfaced indicating they’re winning the race for Dumfries.
The Latest: Chelsea ‘big favourites’ to sign Dumfries…
The Blues are apparently ‘big favourites’ to sign Inter’s star full-back as his club apparently green-light a 2023 sale.
This information comes from Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness), who claim ‘it is certain’ Dumfries ‘will leave’ the Nerazzurri who would prefer to sell him in January and have him back on loan for the rest of the campaign.
The Verdict: Get it done…
The ‘very exciting’ defender, as heralded by members of the Italian media, could be well worth the effort to sign as Potter allegedly chases an alternative to star wing-back Reece James.
