Everton: Journalist drops Denzel Dumfries blow - Everton Transfer Rumours

Only the biggest Everton fan will remember these 10 former loanees! First up, who's this?

Bild (via Sport Witness) claimed that they were among the ‘hottest contenders’ to sign the PSV ace in the summer window, as they look to try and find a long-term replacement for the ageing Seamus Coleman.

The Latest: Dumfries blow

Speaking at De Oranjezomer of Veronica Inside (via Voetbal Primeur), De Telegraaf football journalist Valentijn Driessen has claimed that Dumfries is set to join Inter Milan, even though the Toffees ‘had the best papers’:

“Everton simply had the best papers. Only you have to have money to get someone. And Raiola is of course close with Inter.

From what I understood, Dumfries would now be on his way to Inter with Raiola. As we speak, Inter has the best papers to bring him in. They sold Achraf Hakimi, so they’re really looking for a right back. That’s a bit of the same type.”

The Verdict: Shame

It is a real shame that the Blues look set to miss out on signing Dumfries, as he could have turned out to be a real asset for them.

The Netherlands international caught the eye at Euro 2020, scoring two goals in the group stages from right-back (Sofascore).

He showed his attacking exploits at club level in the 2020/21 season too, scoring four times and making a further nine assists in 41 matches in total over all competitions (Transfermarkt).

Should Everton sign Dumfries?

Yes

Yes

No

No

At 25 years of age, Dumfries has still not reached his peak yet, and given that he is already the captain of PSV, he could have been the perfect ready-made replacement for Coleman once his time at EFC comes to an end.
