Report: Tottenham want Denzel Dumfries and showing most interest

Tottenham want Denzel Dumfries this summer, with Gazzetta dello Sport reporting that Antonio Conte’s men are the side showing the most interest in the Dutchman.

Dumfries has enjoyed an extremely successful first season with Inter Milan. He has scored five goals and provided seven assists for the Nerazzurri in all competitions.

He has been deployed in a slightly different role since moving to San Siro. Simone Inzaghi has arguably used the 26-year-old a bit further forward than a traditional wing-back.

So it is not hard to see why Conte may want the former PSV Eindhoven captain. Right wing-back has been a problematic position for Tottenham this season.

There have been suggestions that Emerson Royal could leave Tottenham after only one year. Certainly, it would be no surprise to see the club attempt to bring a new signing in.

And it seems that Dumfries could be the player Spurs target.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Bayern Munich plan to make the first move for the Netherlands international. But the report adds that Tottenham want Dumfries. And they are, in fact, the Premier League team showing the most interest in the defender.

Tottenham want Denzel Dumfries, and fans would surely love to see move happen

In fairness to Matt Doherty, he has been excellent in recent months for Tottenham. But with Royal struggling, it makes sense that Conte would have his eye on another player.

And Dumfries is one of the best around right now. He has previously been described as ‘amazing‘. And Gazzetta dello Sport suggested that his asking price is around £29.5 million. So he would not cost the earth for Spurs.

He is someone who loves to burst forward and make an impact in the final third. There would definitely be the potential for the wing-back to become a fan favourite in North London.

Certainly, plenty of Tottenham fans will hope that they do indeed make a move for Dumfries.
