Earlier this week, Calciomercato said Aston Villa director Monchi could ‘go all in’ to sign Denzel Dumfries if Matty Cash were to leave Villa Park. It was also stated the Spaniard has held talks with the Inter Milan player’s agent.

Il Giorno have come up with a fresh report and their title says ‘Aston Villa on pole’ to sign the 28-year-old.

Within the report, it’s said Aston Villa like the player who has an uncertain future at the San Siro.

The Netherlands international’s deal lasts until 2025, and there’s no progress made to renew his contract. Therefore, the Italian champions have identified targets to replace him.

Saturday’s edition of Gazzetta dello Sport partly backs up Il Giorno’s claims, and then gives their own updates on Aston Villa.

Dumfries, who currently earns €2.5m per year, is requesting €5.5m to sign an extension. Inter aren’t willing to meet this and are ready to offer €4m plus bonuses.

There’s a ‘stalemate’ between the two parties, and without a renewal, he will be sold in the summer window. This could benefit the Premier League side.

Inter are expecting to collect around €25-30m for the Dutchman, and when discussing his suitors, Aston Villa are mentioned.

Gazzetta claim the Serie A winners are hoping for Unai Emery’s side to step forward to sign Dumfries. As well as Aston Villa, Manchester United also like the player.

Faced with the possibility of losing Dumfries, Inter have identified Spezia’s Emil Holm as an option to replace him.
