Everton’s path is clear to sign PSV Eindhoven right-back Denzel Dumfries, as rival suitors Inter Milan have turned their attention to Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin instead [Sport Mediaset via Sport Witness].
Enjoying a fantastic 2020/21 campaign, the Netherlands international registered 14 goal contributions in 41 appearances for the Eredivisie runners-up; four goals and nine assists [Transfermarkt].
Fresh from an impressive showing at EURO 2020, he now seems set for a Premier League switch following recent developments.
Would Dumfries be a good signing for Everton?
Inter Milan were initially looking at Dumfries due to his potential to replace Achraf Hakimi, who has joined French giants Paris Saint Germain [Sky Sports].
However, they now look set to divert their attention towards Bellerin, who is keen to move to Serie A [Sport Witness].
Paving the way for the Toffees, Goodison Park is now set to be Dumfries’ ‘destination’ after a period of club and player ‘talking intensively’.
In light of this news, loads of Everton diehards took to Twitter to rejoice at these latest developments.
Everton fans react:
Replying to the popular Everton fan account The Everton End on Twitter, here is how some supporters summed up their feelings on Dumfries, with one fan calling the news ‘perfect’:
“We need to replace Coleman in the long term & he looks a decent acquisition. If not Max Aarons is another option”
