Inter Kept English Interest in Star Wingback at Bay

Denzel Dumfries could have left Inter last summer as he drew offers from the Premier League. However, coach Simone Inzaghi convinced him and the management not to pursue his departure, Libero relays (via Sportitalia).

The Dutchman was linked primarily to Manchester United before and after joining the Nerazzurri, especially after they hired Erik Ten Hag. Newcastle United and Aston Villa also reportedly tracked him.

Dumfries experienced a relatively quiet summer in the rumor mill. He’s one of the players Inter could profit from since they got him for a low fee from PSV Eindhoven. However, selling André Onana was enough to satisfy their financial needs this time around.

The wingback had a remarkable maiden season in Milan, while he took a little step back in his second one. He’s off to a good start, having already tallied one goal and one assist through three appearances.

The Nerazzurri elected not to keep Raoul Bellanova and brought in a seasoned veteran, Juan Cuadrado, on a free transfer to deputize him.

Our Take on Dumfries

There’s little doubt he’d fit well in the Premier League, but he never showed signs of restlessness. La Beneamata will probably continue to make at least one big plusvalenza per summer. He’ll be the top candidate in 2024 unless he extends his contract beforehand. His current one expires in 2025.
