Report: Everton receive transfer boost as European giants pull out of race to sign £13.7m-rated ace
Everton are unlikely to face competition from Bayern Munich for Denzel Dumfries, according to Bild.
Reports just three days ago claimed that Bavarian giants were keen on the ace. However, their interest is thought to have cooled due to PSV’s asking price for the fullback.
The publication is claiming that the Bundesliga outfit are under financial pressure. It is thought the appointment of Julian Nagelsmann and signing of Dayot Upamecano means the €16m (£13.7m) fee for the Dutchman is too much.
Nagelsmann cost the German giants €25m (£21.4m), whilst the France youth international was an eye-opening €42.5m (£36.3m).
Meanwhile, the latest news over the Blues’ chase of the 25-year-old says the club need to sell before they can buy the ace.
TBR View: Everton must pounce as Bayern seemingly pull out of Dumfries race
The news that Bayern are seemingly pulling out of the race to Dumfries means Everton must pounce. Signing the Euro 2020 star for a mouth-watering £13.7m is too good of an offer to turn down.
And with the club possessing no real options at right-back, it makes the need for Dumfries all the more important. Seamus Coleman and centre-backs, Ben Godfrey and Mason Holgate shared the responsibilities last term.
His quality has been on full show during the European Championship with the defender scoring two in the three group games. It helped the Netherlands finish top of their respective group, setting up a last-16 tie with the Czech Republic.
However, despite Bayern seemingly pulling out of a move, AC Milan and Internazionale still remain interested. The Italian duo are desperate for options on the right side of defence.
Achraf Hakimi has been linked with an exit, meanwhile, Diogo Dalot has returned to Manchester United following his loan spell.
The Merseysiders have been presented with an opportunity to fill their void at right-back. Dumfries would be a superb addition to the club, who need to move quick to secure his signature.
