Tottenham Hotspur wants Denzel Dumfries, as they are looking to strengthen their options on the right flank. Conte also wants depth in his squad as there will be fixture congestion after the World Cup. However, they will face competition, as their London rivals, Chelsea are also eyeing him. The Nerazzurri are willing to sell a key player as they have to generate profits. So, the interest of Chelsea and Spurs means that it could be Dumfries, who leaves the club.
After signing Ivan Perisic from Inter, Antonio Conte wants Dumfries for the opposite flank. The Italian manager is not satisfied with his current options in the right wing-back position. Both Matt Doherty and Emerson Royale have been poor this season. So the Italian manager wants Dumfries, who has improved a lot at Inter. The Dutch defender is now capable of defending well, as he was just focused on getting forward before. Also, his physicality will help him to adapt to the English Premier League. Spurs use a similar back-three system, so Dumfries will settle comfortably.
Tottenham Hotspur want Dumfries, Chelsea also in the race
Chelsea have been looking to get Dumfries for a long time. They want a backup for Reece James, who is recovering from his injury. Dumfries will help in rotation and give a new dimension to attack. Conte’s side has also struggled in the final third, as they focus on transitions. Dumfries can be a key to giving them a target as he is exceptional in the air.
Heavy competition in the transfer market will increase Dumfries’ transfer value. The Nerazzurri were previously thinking of selling Skriniar, but the sale of Dumfries at a good amount can help them to balance their finances. Inter are also searching for various players, who can replace Dumfries on the right.
