Report: Club will now sell 'amazing' Porro alternative to Tottenham if Paratici comes with £26.5m or more

Tottenham are on the hunt for a new right wing-back in January and according to reports, Denzel Dumfries might still be the one they sign.

Dumfries enjoyed a superb World Cup with the Netherlands and is seen by Antonio Conte as the ideal player to come in and improve on Emerson Royal at right wing-back.

Of course, Dumfries is not the only player Conte is looking at in that position. Sporting Lisbon’s Pedro Porro has been heavily linked in recent weeks. Sporting, though, are thought to only be open to selling if Spurs pay a release clause of more than £40m.

Dumfries, then, could be another option. And according to Rudy Galetti, Inter Milan could be open to selling Dumfries to Spurs if the money is right. It’s reported by Galetti that Inter will open dialogue if Tottenham bring around £26.5m to the table.

Inter’s latest stance on Dumfries is different to reports a few weeks back that suggested the fee might now be as much as £50m following his performances in Qatar.

Spurs, then, seem to have options when it comes to a new wing-back and Dumfries, it seems, is very much in their sights.

TBR’s View: Dumfries a bargain if that price is correct

We all saw in the World Cup just how good Denzel Dumfries can be and he’d be a superb Tottenham signing, especially if the fee is as mentioned here.

Anything below or around the £30m for a top player is seen as par for the course nowadays really. Dumfries is worth that figure, and Conte will be more than aware of him from his time in Milan himself.

For Tottenham, it’s vital they get their next few signings right. There is no time to get it wrong and have to start again.

In terms of wing-backs, Dumfries seems as sure fire a hit as the club could get.
