Manchester United have been named in a transfer update involving Inter Milan right-back Denzel Dumfries.
The Lowdown: Dumfries speculation
The Dutchman is primarily a right-back but can also line out as a right-sided midfielder, as per Transfermarkt. The 26-year-old has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent months, with rumours suggesting that the Red Devils were plotting an offer for Dumfries’ services.
He appears to be at the top of his game with a career-high €28m (£24.8m) Transfermarkt valuation, with a transfer update emerging this week.
The Latest: United still keen on Dumfries
On Wednesday, Sport Witness relayed an update from Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport regarding Dumfries. They claimed that the Netherlands ace is ‘already for sale’, with Inter asking for €60m (£53.1m).
The report named both United and Chelsea as ‘the most interested Premier League big names’, adding that either of the two ‘could bring the operation forward to January’.
The Verdict: Needed?
He could be a shrewd prospective addition under Erik ten Hag due to his versatility, experience at the highest level and seemingly at the peak of his powers.
United are discussing a number of right-back targets, including Celtic’s Josip Juranovic, although any possible right-back arrival will depend on Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s future, so this could be one to watch.
