Chelsea appears to be’strong back’ for signing – a £40 million deal appears to be on the table.
Despite the fact that Chelsea’s pursuit of Denzel Dumfries has been reported on week after week, a specific report from Italy today emphasizes how serious this pursuit is.
The claims are made by Niccolo Ceccarini, who brings fresh transfer news about Italy’s biggest clubs in his editorial at Tutto Mercato Web.
Regarding Dumfries, it has been reported that his situation at Inter Milan’remains open,’ and that Chelsea is ‘back strong’ for the signing.
The Nerazzurri continue to fight. First, by not allowing the player to leave for less than €40 million, and then by attempting to keep him until the end of the season.
However, Ceccarini claims that Inter Milan are “aware of the risk” of losing the Dutchman and have already begun looking for replacements, with Tottenham Hotspur’s Emerson Royal being “one of the most popular profiles.”
Chelsea’s pursuit of Dumfries was previously highlighted by the same journalist in an editorial at the start of the week, when he claimed that, despite Nerazzurri’s large request for his sale, the Blues had the financial power to’shake’ the club and take him away.
