Tottenham are preparing a £20m offer for Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries, according to reports.
As per journalist Ekrem Konur, Tottenham have prepared a £20m offer for the Dutch footballer, whilst Inter are considering accepting a €40 million offer that could come in for the defender.
Who is Denzel Dumfries?
Most fans likely first heard the name Denzel Dumfries during the delayed Euro 2020 tournament this past summer.
Dumfries lined out for the Netherlands at the Euros and caught the eye with his marauding runs down the right from a wing-back role.
His displays at Euro 2020 would then earn him plenty of attention in the 2021 summer transfer window, in which he made the move from PSV to Inter Milan.
The 26-year-old has since continued to impress with Inter, notching five goals and five assists in 29 league ties as Inter aim to defend their Serie A crown.
Matt Doherty a huge miss
Tottenham’s interest in Dumfries comes amid Tottenham’s struggles at wing-back.
The Lilywhites have a number of players who can operate in the wing-back role. However, apart from Matt Doherty, none of them have really excelled in that spot of late.
As a result, it is not too surprising to see Tottenham’s form fall off a cliff now Doherty is out injured.
Tottenham had won six of their last seven league games before the Irishman’s injury. In the two games since, though, Spurs have not managed a single shot on target.
