Inter are looking to replace right wing-back Achraf Hakimi with Denzel Dumfries, but PSV are not interested in allowing him to leave on loan.

As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Corriere dello Sport, the Nerazzurri have identified Netherlands international Dumfries as the ideal replacement for Hakimi but financial constraints mean they are seeking an initial loan.

PSV have no intention of agreeing to any deal that includes a loan, even with an obligation to purchase next summer, and are holding firm to their demands of €15-20 million.

Unless Inter are able to bring in funds with the sale of more players, Dumfries will be beyond their financial reach and they will need to look elsewhere.

However, the newspaper hints that whilst PSV are rigid in their demands, the involvement of agent Mino Raiola could be key to breaking the deadlock and finding a compromise between the two clubs.

As of now though, Inter have not been able to persuade the Dutch club to lower their asking price or sanction a loan.
