Denzel Dumfries has been on Everton’s agenda and reports linking the right-back to the Merseyside club started to surface even before the Euros.
On August 3rd, ED reported the PSV Eindhoven defender has ‘interest from Everton’, while also mentioning Inter Milan want to sign him this summer.
The Serie A winners sold Achraf Hakimi to Paris Saint-Germain and are now in the market looking for his replacement.
Calciomercato.it claim the 25-year-old is expected to be Hakimi’s successor at the San Siro.
Both the Eredivisie side and the Nerazzurri are in a hurry to close the operation, and Inter are working on the last details to seal the Netherlands international’s transfer.
The website mentions Everton and states Rafael Benítez’s side had ‘reached an agreement’ with PSV to sign the Dutchman, but he ‘rejected’ the English club.
That’s because the fullback is ‘eager to wear only the Inter shirt’.
Unless there are last minute twists and surprises, there should be ‘white smoke’ to take Dumfries to Inter.
