Tottenham fans really need to be watching £26m player at the World Cup later today - opinion

Tottenham Hotspur fans really need to be watching Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries at the World Cup later today, after the wing-back has been linked with a move to north London recently.

Calciomercato reported last week that Spurs are interested in signing Dumfries in January

The report claims that Tottenham would even be willing to offer Emerson Royal as part of a deal in order to bring the fee down.

Antonio Conte’s options at right wing-back have struggled to make an impact this season, with Royal and Doherty failing to impress. 

Djed Spence has barely been used by the Italian after making the switch from Middlesbrough over the summer. 

It seems that Spurs could be lining up a move for another right-sided wing-back and fans may want to keep an eye on the £26 million-rated Dumfries at the World Cup. 

Tottenham fans need to be watching Dumfries 

Dumfries has been selected as part of Holland’s 26-man squad and they will face-off against Senegal today. 

The 26-year-old was a standout performer for Louis van Gaal’s men at last year’s Euros and earned a move to Inter after the tournament. 

The Nerazzurri man mainly plays in the wing-back role for his club and the Netherlands, posing a real threat down the right-hand side. 

He has scored five goals and provided six assists in 37 caps for Holland.

Van Gaal’s men face a tough opening match against Senegal today, but Aliou Cisse’s men will be without Sadio Mane after he was ruled out of the tournament. 

Conte will seemingly be searching for a new right wing-back once again as they lack real quality in the area. 

Dumfries has impressed for Inter over the past year, scoring seven goals and providing 10 assists in 67 appearances under Simone Inzaghi. 

There’s no doubt that he would represent a significant upgrade to Conte’s current options and Spurs fans will be able to watch him play today. 

The Milan wing-back will be in action at 4pm and Holland’s clash with Senegal will be shown on ITV 1.
