PSV’s Denzel Dumfries is Inter’s priority target to replace Achraf Hakimi on the right side of the squad, with Simone Inzaghi reported to prefer the Dutchman to alternatives.
This according to Italian news outlet Calciomercato.com, who report that the Nerazzurri hope to complete a deal for the player, though only if they can convince his current club to part with him on loan with an option to buy.
The Nerazzurri have made the arrival of a right-sided player a priority in the summer transfer market with the departure of Hakimi for Paris Saint-Germain leading the club to search for a player with the right profile to replace the Moroccan’s contributions.
Inzaghi is keen on Dumfries, and hopes that the club will be able to get a deal done for the 25-year-old.
However, a significant obstacle to a deal for Dumfries could come in the form of the Nerazzurri’s inability to bring him in unless it is on loan with a purchase option, owing to the club’s financial situation.
PSV are currently not willing to consider letting the player leave in this arrangement, but the Nerazzurri will hope that the player’s desire to join the Nerazzurri will prove decisive in determining the outcome of talks and convince the Dutch side to agree to their terms.
