Inter Star Again Linked with Chelsea Move After Injury

Denzel Dumfries has resurfaced as an immediate option for Chelsea in light of Reece James’ injury, but Inter are unwilling to part ways with him in January. The Blues surely aren’t concerned with his lofty valuation, considering how much they splurged since the Todd Boehly takeover. They plan to continue doing so in the next few windows, TuttoSport informs.

The Pensioners’ starter will miss about a month with his latest setback. A similar but more severe issue cost him the World Cup. They could address the hole in January. They have the Dutchman and Croatia standout Josip Juranovic in their crosshairs.

Inter have been preparing to cash in on Dumfries, but Chelsea aren’t the only side tracking him. They wish to collect €50/60M, but they plan to pull the trigger at the end of the season. They hope a bidding war will ensue, involving Manchester United and Bayern Munich as well.

Instead, a January departure would open a void they might struggle to plug. The Nerazzurri reportedly have Club Brugge’s Tajon Buchanan, Tottenham’s Emerson Royal, and Torino’s Wilfried Singo as their future top targets for the position.

Our Take on Dumfries, Inter, and Chelsea

Teams can map out their strategies all they want, but they can be easily shaken up when a wealthy side with a need comes into the picture. James’ problem doesn’t appear too severe, so they might not sign a replacement, or maybe choose somebody more attainable. If the Nerazzurri start making moves toward finding a successor, and Singo is gettable since his contract isn’t long, then there’s something true to the rumors.
