Chelsea join race for Dumfries along with Man United

Chelsea join the race for Dumfries as Man United are also keen to sign him. The Dutch defender is attracting interest in the transfer window as he has had a great first season with Inter. Teams that use the three at the back system are looking for a player like him. Inter brought him in the last summer to replace Hakimi and he filled his shoes perfectly. Inter will agree to sell the Dutch wing-back if they get a good deal.

Dumfries has been excellent in the final third with his late surging runs into the box. He is exceptional in the air, so he comes up to the far post for the header. The Dutch defender has scored five goals this season, and he has provided seven assists as well. His delivery in the box has improved at Inter and he is still young. Dumfries lacks in his defensive positioning but he covers up with his pace and physicality.

Chelsea join the race for Denzel Dumfries

Bayern and Man United have Dumfries on their radar and Chelsea are looking to sign him as well. However, the Blues have Reece James, but they might lose Azpilicueta so they need another wing-back. Reece James can operate on the right side of the back three as well so Dumfries can fit in. But they will face stiff competition from other clubs and Inter will want a big offer from any club.

The Nerazzurri will then have to look for a replacement if Dumfries leaves. Darmian can be a regular starter, but they will need a backup to help in the rotation. Also, the transfer will depend on the Dutch defender as he might want to continue with Inter. Chelsea are also looking to give Lukaku back to Inter so Dumfries could be a part of that deal.
