Tottenham: Lilywhites plot Denzel Dumfries swap deal -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham Hotspur are plotting a special offer to sign Inter Milan wing-back Denzel Dumfries in the form of a swap deal, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Paratici making transfer plans…

Tottenham sporting director Fabio Paratici will be gearing up for another potentially busy transfer window behind the scenes in N17 after a hectic summer.

The Lilywhites completed moves for Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence, Destiny Udogie and a permanent deal for Cristian Romero, although the hectic fixture schedule and injury concerns would indicate that they may need more reinforcements.

Any possible mid-season signings will also need Antonio Conte’s personal go-ahead, with news emerging on Serie A ace Dumfries, who is a target for Tottenham.

The Latest: Tottenham plot Dumfries swap deal…

It is now believed that Conte ‘wants’ the Netherlands international, who is very likely to feature at the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, having long been a regular for his country.

As the manager seemingly green-lights a move for Dumfries, Spurs are believed to be plotting a unique offer to lower the defender’s €50m (£44m) price tag.

According to Calciomercato, Tottenham apparently plan to offer current wing-back Emerson Royal in a part-exchange deal for the Inter defender.

The Verdict: Make the move?

Called a ‘very exciting and effective’ defender by Serie A writer Jerry Mancini, Dumfries could come as solid option to replace Emerson on the right-hand side of Tottenham’s defence.

As per WhoScored, the 26-year-old ranks joint-fifth in Inter’s squad for key passes made per 90, whilst also attempting their third-highest rate of crosses in the league.

If Conte is after a more attack-minded right-back to provide greater creativity in the forward areas and on the overlap, Dumfries could come as a possible solution.
