PSV Eindhoven are working with Denzel Dumfries to get the player a move this summer, but suitors Everton cannot move due to Financial Fair Play restrictions.
That’s according to Eindhovens Dagblad journalist Rik Elfrink, who has provided an update on the defender’s future today amid the continued links to Everton.
Dumfries has been heavily linked with a move to Goodison Park for several months, having been named as a target before the European Championships.
His excellent performances at that tournament have only increased their desire to make a move happen, but things have been quiet on that front for some time.
A big stumbling block is believed to be Everton’s financial situation, with several in the Netherlands, including Elfrink, having stated on more than one occasion that they need to sell before they can bring Dumfries in.
It appears that remains the case, despite all parties working hard to try and make a move happen sooner rather than later.
“PSV, their management and Dumfries himself are trying to make a transfer,” Calciomercato report him saying.
“We know that Everton are interested in him, but they have to wait because of the rules in England and the Financial Fair Play. It’s impossible for them to get a player now.
“Normally, you don’t see him in a PSV shirt anymore. If nothing materialises, at some point, he might even return to training, but I don’t really expect that.
“I expect the transfer to happen soon because Denzel already said in January that he wanted to leave, and so it can’t be a surprise.
“Coach Roger Schmidt also said a fortnight ago that everyone would be counting on him this season. Everyone knew he would leave.”
