On May 13th, Gazzetta dello Sport stated Denzel Dumfries’ entourage are aware of Aston Villa’s interest in the Inter Milan player.

The right-back’s contract lasts until 2025 and it’s not clear whether or not he’ll sign a new deal at the San Siro. state Unai Emery likes the 28-year-old, who is ‘one of the hottest names’ for Aston Villa.

Having not favoured a move to Villa Park earlier, the player could now change his stance, after the Villans qualified for the Champions League.

The Netherlands international hasn’t reached an agreement for the renewal so far and Inter could make him available in the market. The latter’s idea is to open talks and sell him to the highest bidder in the summer window.

Dumfries isn’t the only Inter player on Aston Villa’s radar as Kristjan Asllani is also said to be a target for them. It’s claimed the Premier League side could ‘also make an attempt’ to sign the 22-year-old midfielder.

The Albania international has clocked in over 1,000 minutes from 30 games and has a deal until 2027. The Nerazzurri are open to selling him, if there’s an offer of over €25m.

It’s claimed Aston Villa ‘could put up to €55m on the table to close’ deals for the duo. Both Dumfries and Asllani aren’t seen as essential players and therefore, Inter would be in favour of selling them in the next window.
