Inter target Mazraoui as Dumfries replacement

Inter Milan target Noussair Mazraoui from Bayern as a potential replacement for Denzel Dumfries. The Nerazzurri are willing to sell Dumfries if a big offer arrives. Premier League clubs like Manchester United, and Chelsea are looking to sign the Dutch defender. There could be a bidding war for Dumfries that will increase his transfer value. Inter will then look to sign an ideal replacement for Dumfries. So, the World Cup semi-finalist Mazraoui is a viable option.

The Nerazzurri have been eyeing Mazraoui when he was at Ajax. However, the German giants snatched him from the Dutch league, and he has been impressive for them in the first season. But, Bayern are also monitoring Dumfries in the transfer market, so a swap deal can take place. Both play in a similar position with slightly different profiles. The former Inter wing-back, Hakimi played on the right for Morocco in the World Cup. While Mazraoui was comfortable operating on the left side, which shows his versatility.

Inter target Mazraoui from Bayern in a swap deal

Bayern will have to face stiff competition from the Premier League clubs to acquire Dumfries. Manchester United have been after Dumfries for a long time now. Erik Ten Hag wants to make a move for the Dutch defender, as he is short of a right full-back. Dumfries will add a new dimension to attack, and give option on set-pieces as he is incredible in the air.

Chelsea are searching for a backup for Reece James, who has recovered from a serious injury. The Blues want an aggressive right-wing-back, and Dumfries fits that profile. Azpilicueta could leave the club by the end of this season. But Inter will give priority to Bayern as they can solve their problem of finding a replacement. Also, Mazraoui can play on the left side, which makes him an ideal backup for Dimarco if Gosens leaves.
