Chelsea submit mouthwatering £30 million bid for highly talented wing-back
According to Italian media, Chelsea has made a €35 million (£30.8 million) bid for Inter winger Denzel Dumfries.
Chelsea are now focused on bringing in a right-sided defender before the end of the January transfer window, having secured an £88.6 million deal for Mykhailo Mudryk over the weekend.
Chelsea are currently without Reece James due to a recurring knee injury, and the club are looking to add competition for the 23-year-old.
According to the Italian newspaper La Repubblica, Chelsea have now tabled a €35 million (£30.8 million) bid for Dumfries, but Inter are seeking a much higher fee for the Netherlands international.
According to the report, the Serie nu A club wants at least €55 million (£48.4 million) for the 26-year-old.
Dumfries, who represented the Netherlands at the World Cup in December, has recently been linked with a move to Manchester United.
Last week, Dumfries’ agent refused to rule out a move away from Inter before the transfer window closed.
‘He’s an inter player right now, and we’ll see what happens later,’ Rafaela Pimenta told RAI.
Meanwhile, Mudryk has stated that it was through ‘hard work’ that he was able to sign with Chelsea.
‘I’m very excited to be here and be a part of the Chelsea project,’ said the 22-year-old.
‘This is a big club, and I’m glad to be here. I want to try to help the team win titles, improve my game, and always give my all for Chelsea.
‘My career has always been built on hard work, which is why I’m here. Hard work is something I’ve always valued and strived to achieve.
‘Every Premier League match is difficult, but I can’t wait to get started here.’
