Inter Keen on Keeping Dumfries amid Growing Interest

Denzel Dumfries has gotten off to a decent start this season, scoring two goals and providing two assists so far and cementing his status as a difference maker. He has been one of Inter’s top playmakers. His name is constantly bandied about in the transfer market.

As per Calciomercato, Chelsea and Bayern Munich, which made timid attempts over the summer, continue to keep tabs on the Dutchman. However, the Nerazzurri have no plans to sell him. Though, it could be tough for them to turn down major offers considering their struggling finances.

The Blues will likely ask for him again while discussing the extension of Romelu Lukaku’s stint in Milan. The permanent return of the Belgian striker is more likely in 2024. He will probably spend another campaign on loan.

Instead, Bayern Munich could act sooner and go after the fullback next summer. Still, it would take a very large bid to convince La Beneamata to let go of their star. The Bundesliga giants could be better positioned to lure him. The Italian side would prefer to cash in on him rather than include him in a deal as a makeweight.

Our Take on Dumfries

The lingering ties to Chelsea don’t make a whole lot of sense, given the presence of Reece James, if not for the recent entanglements between the two sides. The Bavarian powerhouse is a more credible future landing spot. They are no strangers to singing Dutch players. The Nerazzurri managed to avoid a major sale last summer, but it could come soon after the season to meet their rumored economic goals. Since the 26-year-old joined for a relatively cheap fee, he’s one of the primary candidates for a rich plusvalenza.
