Chelsea Ready To Make A €50m Move For This Inter Milan Ace: Good Fit For Potter?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent print edition, Corriere dello Sport claimed that Chelsea are ready to make a €50m move for Inter Milan ace Denzel Dumfries next year. It is understood that the Blues are eager to strengthen their squad by recruiting the Dutch wide player.

Dumfries’ Good Start To This Serie A Season

The 26-year-old has made a decent start to this campaign after putting in a few impressive performances on the right side of Inter’s midfield. Dumfries has found the back of the net on two occasions and picked up one assist in nine matches for the Italian outfit this season in all competitions.

The 35-time Netherlands international has performed well to average 1.1 clearances, 1.9 shots and 1.4 key passes per 90 minutes in Serie A football. He has even been accurate when distributing possession from the right flank after making 78.5% of his attempted passes in the top tier of Italian football (stats via whoscored).

Dumfries is under contract at San Siro until 2025, so it is no surprise that the Blues are willing to pay €50m for his services as Inter have no immediate pressure to cash in on him.


Is Dumfries A Good Fit For Chelsea Head Coach Graham Potter?

Dumfries can sense the danger quickly and usually clear his lines when required. He can create some inviting opportunities for his teammates in the final third and can strike the ball with power from long range.

The Dutch sensation is good enough to operate as a right-sided winger or as a right-back if needed. Hence, someone of his versatility will be a brilliant fit for Chelsea next summer.

Dumfries is good enough to serve as a good replacement for Cesar Azpilicueta who is entering the twilight years of his playing career at Stamford Bridge. The Inter Milan talent has what it takes to rival Reece James for a regular starting spot at the West London club in the coming seasons. At 26, Dumfries is enjoying the peak years of his playing career. However, there are some concerns over whether he would be able to cope with the physical nature and high intensity of Premier League football.

We can expect Dumfries to increase competition for places within Graham Potter‘s match-day squad. With all things considered, Chelsea should think about going all out to bring the Dutchman to the English capital when the transfer window reopens in January or next summer.
