Mino Raiola is talking to Everton about a move for Denzel Dumfries, although PSV Eindhoven are yet to receive an official bid.
That’s according to Voetbal International journalist Marco Timmer, who says the player has been given permission to discuss a move away from the Dutch club.
Dumfries has been linked with a move to Everton since before the Euros, with it explained that Marcel Brands is a big fan.
He has regularly been named as a target since that point, with Inter Milan having also joined the race for his signature after his impressive displays for the Netherlands.
It’s been made clear that PSV are happy to let him go should they receive the right bid, although the figure they’re looking for has varied between €15m and €25m.
What it is remains to be seen, but it appears they are doing their utmost to make the process an easy one, and Raiola is already working to make a deal happen.
“He (Roger Schmidt) doesn’t really expect Malen and Dumfries back,” Timmer told Voetbal International.
“On the other hand, I believe they have to report back on 19 July. There is not enough movement yet to say that there is already a transfer (but) we also know that things can go fast.
“I have spoken to some people within PSV who indicate there has been nobody concrete yet, not for Madueke. Not for Ihattaren, not for Dumfries, not for Malen yesterday.
“Yes, of course, there are negotiations going on, and with that, it can also be counted on the negotiations that in this case, Mino Raiola is conducting with Dortmund or Liverpool, for example, for Malen and Inter and Everton for Dumfries, so he has been given that space.
“They are allowed to talk to other clubs. And then at some point, it can go fast.”
