Marcos Alonso is thought to currently be the standout candidate to fill the left-sided role in incoming Inter manager Simone Inzaghi’s tactical system, according to reports.

Meanwhile 25-year-old Dutch international Denzel Dumfries is a name which has come up as a possible candidate to replace Achraf Hakimi on the right side should the Moroccan depart in the summer, these according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

Regarding Alonso, it is thought that the Spaniard would be likely to arrive at the Giuseppe Meazza as part of any deal to send Hakimi to Chelsea should such a deal happen.

It is less likely that Alonso would join the Nerazzurri if Hakimi were to end up moving to PSG over the London club, with the club still exploring other targets including Getafe’s Uruguayan left-back Matias Oliveira who has a €20 million release clause.

On the right side, PSV’s attack-minded full-back Denzel Dumfries is now thought to be an option who the Nerazzurri are weighing up to potentially replace Hakimi.

The 25-year-old impressed in the Netherlands’ EURO 2020 opener against Ukraine, scoring the winning goal.

He has made 89 Eredivisie appearances for the Eindhoven club since joining from Heerenveen in 2018 and would likely cost the Nerazzurri somewhere in the region of €20 million.

Cagliari’s Nahitan Nandez and Chelsea’s Davide Zappacosta are among the other players thought to be targeted by Inter for the right side.
