Chelsea in bidding war for €25m-rated Netherlands international

Chelsea could come back with an improved
offer for Inter Milan defender Denzel
Dumfries as they are ready to hold new
transfer negotiations with the Nerazzurri
over a deal for the wing-back in January.
The Blues’ transfer dealings are picking up
momentum as the search for extra
defenders for the German manager’s squad
continues.
The London giants have already purchased
Koulibaly, who has made a strong start to
life at Chelsea with a debut goal, and
Cucurella has also arrived from Brighton for
a world record fee for a left-back, as a direct
replacement for outgoing Alonso to provide
competition for Chilwell.
Todd Boehly hasn’t been scared off by the
hefty price tags on both footballers’ heads as
the London club turn to more defensive
targets.
The new Blues co-owner made an enquiry
with Inter Milan for Dumfries last month as
Tuchel looks to provide Reece James with a
backup, keep the option of using the English
right-back as a centre-back and also provide
general cover for the ageing Azpilicueta, and
even made their opening offer to the
Nerazzurri a fortnight back.
However, their proposal was swiftly rejected
by Inter Milan as they continue to hold out
for a fee of nearly €40m, a figure that the
Blues have yet to match. While the Dutch
right-back has remained on their radar,
their pursuit of him has cooled down in the
last week or so as they look to prioritise
other business.
