Chelsea determined to complete the signing of impressing Dutch International
Chelsea are reportedly determined to complete the signing of Dutch International Denzel Dumfries.
Reece James picked up a serious injury earlier in the season that has kept him out for a while now – and also kept him out of impressing at the World Cup with England.
He may be getting better and returning to action soon – but his departure has shown Graham Potter that he needs to delve into that transfer kitty and add another right-sided defender to the squad.
Dumfries is a player that Chelsea have been eyeing up for some time – but have never made an official offer – but after seeing him impress at the World Cup – and according to reports on Goal – Chelsea are determined to sign the defender
Amid all that speculation – Matteo Di Marzio recently told Chelsea how they may be able to sign the defender.
Speaking to wettfreunde regarding Dumfries, Matteo Di Marzio said: “He’s doing a good job at Inter – even Wednesday night against Barcelona.
“They don’t want to sell Dumfries but you know the economical situation of Inter is particular because the club is having economical problems and so I think every player at Inter could be sold.
“But in this moment the owner of Inter and Simone Inzaghi and the managers, they decided not to touch the most important players until the end of the season – Dumfries, [Milan] Skriniar.
“They will try to keep the most important players until the end of the season and at the end of the season with Chelsea they will try to renew the deal of Lukaku,” he added.
“”I don’t know if in Lukaku’s deal, Chelsea will try to ask again for Dumfries, or Skriniar or Lautaro [Martinez].
“It depends on the two situations of the clubs but they will talk again soon because Lukaku wants to stay at Inter and so surely Chelsea and Inter have to talk about Lukaku and probably other players.”
