Tottenham: Antonio Conte personally targeting Denzel Dumfries

Tottenham: Antonio Conte personally targeting Denzel Dumfries -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte is personally targeting Inter Milan defender and 2022 World Cup hopeful Denzel Dumfries.

The Lowdown: Spurs make January plans?

Conte has often spoken publicly about Spurs’ need for strength in depth, especially considering his want for the north Londoners to become a major Premier League force.

The Lilywhites boss could arguably be happy with the way his side have started 2022/2023 as Tottenham currently sit third in the table with only Arsenal and league champions Man City winning more games.

However, Conte has also had to cope with his fair share of injury problems, prompting reports of potential January moves for the likes of James Maddison and Ruslan Malinovskyi.

Sporting director Fabio Paratici could be a busy man mid-season as news emerges on Netherlands international ace Dumfries.

The Latest: Conte personally targeting Dumfries…

According to reports out of Italy, it appears Spurs’ head coach has personally set his sights on a new right-wing-back target.

The RWB spot has largely been a point of contention at N17 this season with mainstay Emerson Royal attracting some criticism – and there is a belief they need to strengthen in that position.

As a result, Calciomercatoweb.it now claim Conte is targeting Dumfries as a possible solution, and the report adds that Inter could ‘request’ Emerson as a possible makeweight. However, a swap deal is viewed as unlikely as things stand.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

The Verdict: Make the move?

At 26 years old and valued at around €40 million (£35m), Dumfries could fit the bill going by his plaudits and numbers in a Nerazzurri jersey.

Called a ‘very exciting and effective player‘ by Serie A football writer Jerry Mancini, the defender appears dangerous on the overlap, having registered two assists already over 2022/2023.

Dumfries is a mainstay under manager Simone Inzaghi, playing the fourth-most league minutes out of any Inter player whilst also delivering their third-highest rate of crosses per 90 (WhoScored).

It’s hardly shocking that Conte could look to his homeland for a wing-back solution and Dumfries appears to be a credible candidate.
